- Don't use copy & paste, use place with any asset you import.
- To see what isoutside the text box go to Edit > Edit in Story Editor (cmd/strg+Y)
- Of course, you have to format this text somehow. Now you are obvisouly not using any style, use paragraph styles to format any text as you would do it in Word r any other text handling application. (Or at least you should do there.)
thanks for that
I copied from Word then in InDesign FILE > Place - no red square but text has a pink background in normal view which I presume is telling me this error
TEXT > Missing font > Arial Maori Regular.
How do I get this missing font into InDesign CS6?
Does an error like this mean that the published document won't contain this text?
thanks for your help Lou
Does the text contain special glyphs that require a font with Maori support? Id not then you can edit the styles to change the font (or, on the strong probability that the Word file doen't really use styles, you can use Find Font to replace it). if you do need Maori support, you should install a font that supports it, like Arial Maori, on the computer. ID uses any fonts installed normally for the OS (presuming they are not really badly made) or that are located in the private Adobe or InDesign fonts folders.
Yes it is special glyphs part of the written language of our Maori people and the piece that I am trying to bring across into ID is not written on my computer.
Obviously it's not in the list in ID fonts but you say that I can install it onto my computer and it will be recognised by ID.
Do you know - where do I find this font please and how do I install it on my computer fonts?
What's your OS? It looks like Windows 7 has a Maori language pack.
And with any luck, someone like Joel Cherney who know a lot about specialty fonts and non-western typesetting will weigh in.
