Just leave them in the Document Fonts folder that came with the package. The fonts will load for that document.
From which version does the package come from?
When you are on the Mac, you can use Windows fonts, but not Mac only Fonts on Windows. OTF are not a problem.
When the file comes from an older version it might be packaged and the font folder must be renamed to "Document fonts".
If the file comes from an older version it will open as converted file, you have to place it at the very same place as the old file, otherwise it will not detect the fonts.
Thanks for your response. That’s what I thought would happen, but when I open it the pink highlighting shows fonts are not loaded.
We don't see your screen shot.

Document info shows it as InDesign CC2014, which I am using on an iMac running Yosemite. I left it in its original package folder and opened the document from there. The fonts folder is called “Document fonts”. They are mostly TrueType, if that is a factor. I don’t know if she’s a Mac or Windows user but I suspect the later because of the TrueType fonts.
The document Info shows only the current version.
Where does the document come from? You can see it if you hold down the command key and go to the menu "About InDesign…" It will show the history.
About InDesign is found on the Mac in the InDesign menu, on Windows in the Help menu.
What is your OS?
Please remove your private information.
My OS is 10.10. The history says document is InDesign CC2014 (10.0.0.70)
Thanks for answering…..
PLEASE turn off or delete the auto-signature when you reply by email. I'm sure you don't really want to publish your name, address and phone number on the web.
I've deleted it from your last three posts, but I won't continue to do so.
So, sorry, didn’t realize that. Thanks.
So waht does Find Font say is missing? Is that font in the Document Fonts folder? Is the folder really named Document Fonts (case sensitive) and is it in the same folder as the .indd file?
It was Document fonts, lower case on the f, I changed it to cap F. Still not working There are 10 missing fonts, some true type, some not. Everything is within the folder, but the fonts are in a subfolder, do I put the InDesign doc in the font subfolder?
No. The .indd and the Document Fonts folder just need to be in the same parent folder. What are the names of the fonts? Does Find Font say they are all missing?
Can you go to Type > Find Font and search the first instance of a missing font. Make a screen shot and post it here.
You can't attach images vie E-Mail, you have to go to the Forum and write your answer here.
The Document fonts folder is written with f not F.
I stand corrected on the spelling for fonts, and apparently it is NOT case sensitive -- I have both versions on my system and they work fine.
OK, good to know!
Sorry for the delay in answering. The fonts named as missing are:
Helvetica Neue (T1) 107 Extra Black Cond Oblique
Helvetica Neue (T1) 27 Ultra Light Condensed
Helvetica Neue (T1) 35 Thin
Helvetica Neue (T1) 45 Light
Helvetica Neue (T1) 65 Medium
Helvetica Neue (T1) 66 Medium Italic
Helvetica Neue (T1) 67 Medium Condensed
Helvetica Neue (T1) 75 Bold
Helvetica Neue (T1) 76 Bold Italic

Helvetica Neue (T1) 87 Heavy Condensed
Helvetica Neue (T1) 95 Black
Helvetica Neue (T1) 97 Black Condensed
Helvetica Neue (T1) 97 Black Condensed Oblique
I do not see these in the Fonts Folder, or much else I recognize as a font. I didn’t look before because I just assumed when packaged every font would be collected, but maybe they are just not there.
You are going to need the OpenType version of the font. There's no way that a Windows machine will work with old Type 1 PS fonts. And if you get the OT version, there will be the same problem going the other way; your collaborator will not have the version of the font you are using and will have to replace all the fonts again.
Larry, this is going from PC to Mac, not vice versa, so the fonts WILL work, but not in the Document fonts folder, which does not support T1 fonts. You will need to copy the fonts to the InDesign private fonts folder to use them. The should work from there, but this will defeat the document-only connection and they will become available to any file in ID.
Nice to know what the problem is. Where is the InDesign private fonts folder, and is there a way to mark them or put them in their own sub-folder within the private fonts folder for easy removal after the project? Or is this being paranoid and they would do no harm being there?
There is always the possibility of repeat business with this client that could mean having to work with them again. So possibly useful to me in the future.
Should be in the InDesign application folder. I don't know if a subfolder will work, but it might, and an alias to the Doc Fonts folder might work, too. There's a pretty good chance that folder is empty now, by the way.
