The Document Installed Fonts feature is really designed for service bureaus who have to open and output hundreds of files from different clients using different versions for the same fonts, and it works pretty well for that. It is not intended as a way to skirt the necessity to own a license to use a font for editing or design work.
Another problem - this time with file AdobeFnt14.lst .
If I copy "document fonts" folder to new job which use same fonts id sometimes wont activate fonts from d.f. folder. I need to delete AdobeFnt14.lst file and reopen document. This time indesign regenerate AdobeFnt14.lst file and all is ok.
Another problem with the Document Fonts folder that we just noticed: in CS5, you could place Windows Type 1 fonts (.pfm and .pfb) into the Document Fonts folder on a Mac and InDesign would activate them.
This no longer works in CS6. (Bug report filed.)
Huge bummer, as this was a great timesaver and workaround in a high-production prepress environment when working with old Windows files. Hopefully this was not an intentional change and will be restored in a later bugfix release, or at worst in CS7.
Put them into the InDesign/fonts folder in the meantime.
Hello--I can't seem to find where to place my fonts in order to access them on InDesgin CS6. (I'm using a Mac.)
I tried to follow the instructions for placing them in the administrator/library folder but I couldn't find that folder.
Can someone advise please?
