I've disabled fonts in fontbook and various othe rfont management programs but nothing seems to disable them as far as InDesign is concerned. My font menu is still full of garbage fonts that I"ll never use and never wanted. How can I get rid of them? This happens on InDesign CS4 and on CS6 in all applications. I'm using an iMac with OS 10.7.5
Remove fonts manually from these two locations:
<home> > Library > Fonts (In recent OSX versions hold down the Option key and choose Go > Library to get to the Library folder.)
Library > Fonts
Also remove from Applications > Adobe InDesign [version number] > Fonts if you've placed any there.
First you'll need to run a Font validation from the Font Book choosing all fonts. Note down the Yellow and Red fonts which designate as bad fonts or duplicate fonts, then you can follow Steve's post.
