We have a production system that is working great with our applications. Recently we put some new fonts in the Adobe Font directory (not the Windows Font directory) and on some of our .pdf outputs there was font corruption (lots of weird characters, etc). It seemed that the system read those fonts and corrupted different outputs, even when they were not referencing those specific fonts.
I ended up copying the new fonts into the Windows font directory and all went ok but now we're not seeing those specific fonts being used by InDesign.
So question - when I have a piece that requires a specific font, where do I put that font on the server and how to place it so it won't corrupt my other systems and their outputs that don't use those fonts?
