Does not work, how? What font format is it?
I'm talking about your old version...

You still didn't say what Doesn't Work means. If might be as simple as it isn't listed where you expect it, so scroll through the list.
I have scrolled through the list that opens with InDesign, DecorationPi shows up except boxes with an X in when selected.
I did this first Book Plate design in the late 50's using lead type. Reproduced it in the late 90's on the computer. First Mac in 1985. Consulting and Medical Office Software Development for 20 + yrs. Have CS from version 2. I have been around.
Has the font ever worked in CS6? If not, did it work in a previous version? Did it ever work in any version of ID using your current OS version? I ask the last question because I helped someone on another forum today that had a font that did not survive migration on their Mac. In their case, the font was selectable but the application would crash exporting to PDF or printing.
I'm using a PC. It works here.
It is listed along with the fonts that start with D here.
Adobe's OpenType CFF fonts are Unicode-encoded. That means that you need to use the Glyphs Palette to access symbols in a font. The characters don't map to normal keyboard characters. If you once used the old Type 1 version of these fonts, there is an incompatibility in that their characters did map to the keyboard. You will need to replace characters using the Glyphs Palette as an assist.
Thanks to each of you responding to my concern. I have used the Glyphs Palettes before but was not expecting such a bulky way to handle the task. With my old Linotype Decoration Pi Font, hit the key and it was there.
I spent several hrs prior to purchase trying to get some answers prior to buying but support was of no help. I will not get sucked into the Monthly Cloud Plan.
Not a good solution but a solution.
