# Adobe Indesign CS6 not finding fonts

Dear Support,

Adobe Indesign is not detecting the font arial narrow bold, narrow italic, please can you inform what to do.

I have reinstalled the font in the windows\fonts folder restarted and still experience issues.

I have reinstalled adobe indesign cs6 and still no luck.

Please get back to me.

Kindest Regards.

Try to put in indesign application folder>fonts folder, hope it may help.

This is a user to user forum, not tech support.

There are known issues with some versions of Arial Narrow, caused by improper naming by Microsoft (or Monotype) in some of the internal font fields. If you do a Google Search for Arial Narrow InDesign you should come up with a lot of information and possible workarounds (though my personal suggestion is to find a different font).

Dear Salah,

I have tried doing this with no success.

I have followed a number of solutions on the Adobe Website and Microsoft Website.

The problem is that we have two users in our marketing team accessing these files.

Both of them work on these files and the first user is not experiencing any issues.

Is there any other solutions.

Kindest Regards.

Hi Jan Lotz,

You should keep the font arial narrow bold, narrow italic in the same folder where you keep your indesign file. Then open the indesign file hope it will work.

Good luck!

Not true. At the very same place as the InDesign document is saved should be a folder with the name "Document fonts" and in this folder you have to put all fonts.

You should also take care if the font family include a font with these styles and is compatible to your OS. Best practice is to use OTF fonts.
