We have recently installed ID CS6 on our Windows 7 PCs. When we open docs from previous versions of ID CS6, we find many missing fonts, ie. ITC Zapf Dingbats (TT) (Medium) - we have "regular" but ID doesn't recognize them as being the same thing and doesn't allow us to use the substitute with this font, Helvetica, and even Gill Sans Light. This is a huge problem because these fonts are in almost all of our documents. I know that it has something to do with ID "reading" them differently because we do have this font available in Photoshop. (Both ITC Zapf Dingbats (TT) in Regular and ITC Zapf Dingbats (T1) in Medium are there.) Is there any way to get ID to recognize both of these fonts so I don't have to go in and manually change all of my fonts?
Thanks for any help!
Zapf Dingbats (TT) and (T1) are completely different fonts -- one is TrueType and the other is Type1 Postcript. There is no way they will be automatically interchangeable in ID.
Do you know why one would not show up in ID CS6? It is in older documents but this font doesn't show up in 6. (I know little about fonts.)
Is it installed? It sounds like you may have the TT on some machines and the T1 on others.....
