    Schriften laden / Fonts loading




      wir verwenden InDesign von CS 3 aufwärts und haben nun das Problem da wir auf Win7/8 umsteigen das wir die SChriften nur mit Administratoinsrechten laden können. Das soll heißen, in den Systemordner und den Programme Ordner kann man nur noch mit Administrationsrechten kopieren was bei Win XP noch funktionierte. Daraufhin haben wir einen Lösung gesucht und dachten als wir die Benutzer Schriftenordner (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fonts) bzw. den Versionsabhängigen Ordner (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 7.5\de_DE\CompositeFont) gefunden haben dachten wir es wäre damit gelöst. Im ersten Ordner werden die Schriften gar nicht erst erkannt und in keinem Adobe Programm verfügbar, im zweiten werden die Schriften Teilweise geladen und die Restlichen Schriftdateien werden einfach gelöscht ohne Benachrichtigung oder so.


      Haben wir eine Einstellung übersehen oder wie können wir diese Problem lösen?


      Mit freundlichen Grüßen






      We use InDesign CS 3 and above and now have the problem as we move to Win7/8 we can load the fonts with Administratoinsrechten. That is to say, in the system folder and the Program Files folder can be copied only with administrator rights which still worked on Win XP. Then we looked for a solution and thought as we the users font folder
      (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fonts) and the version addicts folder (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 7.5\de_DE\CompositeFont) we thought it would be solved. In the first folder the fonts are not only recognized and available in any Adobe program, in the second, the fonts are partially loaded, and the rest Font files are simply deleted without notification or so.

      Have we overlooked a setting or how can we solve this problem?

      Sincerely yours

          It isn't clear to me if you are trying to load fonts permanently for use by all programs, or temporarily, and why it would be a problem for temporary fonts to be available only to Adobe programs, or perhaps you mean the fonts SHOULD only be available to Adobe programs (in which case you would put them in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts on 32-bit Windows, or C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts on 64-bit). There is also a fonts folder in the ID application folder that is accessible only to InDesign.


          For CS5 and later, you can also create a folder named Document Fonts in the same directory as the .indd file and fonts placed in that folder can be used by that .indd file for editing.

            thanks for your answer. Than i will explain it a little more.


            The Fonts we are copying into (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fonts) are showing up and are usable in all Adobe products exept InDesign. The other Folders like system, programm files we can´t use because there are protected by the system and only writeable with admin rights. We only work with Adobe products so we only need the fonts in these programms. We have vor each User (projects) seperate font packages. So the only thing is why dosen´t find InDesign these fonts in (C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fonts).

              Have you tried the two locations I mentioned in my first post? They also appear to be restricted, but it looks to me like an Admin user can change the permissions to allow ordinary users to write to the Common Files\Adobe\Fonts folder.

                Yes i have tried. The locations are protected like you sayed. But here is the problem when the admin give write access the fonts in this folder are global for all users and that is what we wouldn´t have. We would have the fonts only for the current user because an other user need other fonts which could collide with other.

                I don´t understand why all adobe programs (Photoshop, Illustrator) use these fonts (folder) exept InDesign. That isn´t normal.

                  Presumably only one user is logged in at a time on each machine. The user could add and remove their fonts as required.
