I am using Mac OS X version 10.7.5 with CS6 version 8.0. When I create an ad in indesign and copy it or drag it onto another page (the finished layout page for a newspaper) Some of the fonts that are enabled in my suitcase, show as if they are not found when dragged to the new document. When i use "find font" and replace the "missing" font with the exact same one it was built with (in the other document) it comes in slightly different, and needs some adjusting. I deal with many ads and bringing them together to build many collective pages. How can I transfer my individual ad pages to my collective layout pages without having issues with font? I would like to still be able to edit the ad on the (collective) page, so placing a PDF or ID doc is not an option.
Please help! this is slowing down production and proving very frustrating!
Thanks in advance.
Do you use styles in these ads? Same named styles inthe receiving document with different definitions (or same named styles with differnt defintions used as the basis for other styles) can cause this. Another possibility is moving an element from a file saved in a previous version of ID into a newer version document. Legacy text frames are not recomposed until you try to edit them.
I did some testing and I think it is the styles. There is the possibility it is the older version part as well, as both pages are coming from CS3 (which is originally converted from Quark). Thank you for your help, it appears as if when we make the original layout pages we ensure all paragraph and charater styles are deleted, then we can drag them over with no problems. Thanks!
