    Don't see font.


      I have Win7x64, Office 2010, inDesign CS6, all Arial fonts in Windows\Fonts folder. But ID don't see them all (Narrow Bold in particular). The same problems but with Office 2007 was, as I can find in Internet. This hotfix not work with MSO 2010. Deleting adobelists files not give effect. What should I try more?


      As I can understand this hot fix replace arial  to old vertions (for Arial it's 2.30). Right now MS close links for download by simple redirect to shops where I should buy it. (*Buy a bug fix - cool)

      Also for me it's not clear why this is only MS and font problem. Other programs see those fonts without problems. Dont know what is it license restriction or unicode or 64bit's problem but, apologize that Adobe can and should fix it from there side.

          Do you have Arial Narrow Bold installed?

          On MS Office you can apply bold to fonts without having installed a dedicated bold font by creating a false bold type, but with InDesign you have to have installed a bold version of that particular font.

              Thank you Peter, but I  loose my Arial Narrow font after replacement, and should back to new version.

              Font changing to old - not help right now. If I change it in Windows\Fonts - nothing happened, but only if I change it in ID\Fonts. Strange and not clear - fonts is here, all programs can work with exactly Narrow Bold font file, ID can't, in old Adobe's excuse this is MS side problem... steange-strange... Who shoulde be kicked and how for move this problem from dead point?

                You probably need to install (not just copy) the old version by right-clicking on it and choosing Install so it uses Windows routines to replace the file and update the list in the Registry, then reboot, and it may also be necessary to delete your Adobefnt*.list files where * is a two-digit number.
