    InDesign CC 2014, no composite font editor menu

    nanaGom Level 1

      I installed the new verson of InDesign (InDesign cc 2014 release, KOREAN) yesterday.

       

      and composite font editor menu is missing.

       

      Is this just a kind of BUG?

       

      or there is something I can do to fix this?

          Are other Japanese\Korean features showing up fine for you?

          Can you also mention the platform you are using and any other prior InDesign that you may have on that system.

            I can't tell you anything about the CJK version, but, for what it's

            worth, the Middle Eastern version of ID 2014 does have the composite

            font editor menu in the usual place under the Type menu.

              The Composite Font editor is present in ME versions and the CJK versions. What is asked you was that you have installed Korean and are not seeing the Composite Font Editor but are you also not seeing other Korean features in InDesign like vertical frame-grids, vertical frames etc.

              I want to understand whether you have installed the correct Korean build or accidentally installed an English build on a Korean OS and hence having the UI show up as Korean but the Korean features missing.

                I use windows 8.1

                and other features are now showing up either ;(..

                 

                I tried again(downloaded InDesign again) but nothing changed.

                 

                downloaded from Adobe Korea homepage, and from adobe cloud program(Korean selected).

                 

                now I think that I can't download KOREAN ver.(I don't know why..maybe system setting is wrong or something else.)

                  What went wrong i think here is that you have accidentally set your creative cloud applications language to English. You should first change the language to Korean and then try downloading InDesign.

                  How to check and change the language of CC App:

                  1. Open the CC App.

                  2. Go to Preferences dialog. (click on the settings icon and chose Preferences from the menu that opens)

                  3. Then switch to the Apps tab and check what language is listed there, if its not Koran change it to Korean.

                  Let me know what happensApps.PNG

                    I have a similar issue, but with Chinese InDesign CC.

                     

                    On one of my computers, I managed to install InDesign in both "Traditional chinese" and "English (North America)".

                     

                    Now I have CC set to English UI and I can see the Composite fonts menu.

                     

                    My problem is how to replicate this on another computer. Even when I install both language versions,  I get either Chinese UI with Composite fonts or English UI without the option (even if I choose Japanese paragraph composer).

                     

                    Since I strongly prefer English UI, I wish there was a simple way around it (as is in Illustrator - display Asian type options).

                      The Composite Fonts option is available also on the Middle East version

                      (e.g. Hebrew). The UI for that is in English. And of course, behind the

                      scenes these days all version support CJK.

                       

                      So if all you're looking for is Composite Fonts, you could install the

                      ME version.

                       

                      Regarding other CJK UI features, though, I don't know, but I suspect

                      they're not available except in the CJK version.

                        hello

                        I have a question regarding this

                         

                        I need the English version of the InDesign, because of the settings of the programs for new files

                        but, I need the composite font windows

                        is there a possibility to have English InDesign WITH the compsite font menu?

                         

                        when I recreate files using ME version, the default make all the files as arabic, and when I use Chinese Indesign, the automatic space between lines, default font, hypernation and other necesary tools are different of absent

                         

                        thanks in advance

                            hello

                            I am a graphic designer, I work for a translation company in US

                             

                            all the files I received are in english and the target language could be any

                             

                            when this target language is Chinese or Japanese or others, I need to create a new composite font or use new old ones, to be able to mix the original typography of the client and the new text in the foreign language

                             

                            other work we do is recreate the design files when the client doesnt have them (in English)

                            if I use a east version, I have issues with fonts, tools missing or misplacing or large space between lines, or other problems

                            if I use the ME version, I have other issues, alignment and numbers are recreated in Arabic, and I cannot change this settings

                             

                            I was using this last months the Chinese version of Indesign, so was able to create if necesary, but .. I have lots of issues when I am not working with this languages, and

                             

                            so .. I need to work in the English InDesign, but be able to open the composite font menu

                            is there a InDesign version to allow me this?

                             

                            thanks
