Where was the font stored? On your local computer? On a server?
What version of InDesign? What computer platform?
You can use Type > Find Font to show more information about the fonts in a document.
Thank you so much for responding. I have to admit, I'm just learning about Indesign and Adobe. I use a Mac and indesign through Creative Cloud. I've already synced and updated to the latest version. I assume it was pulling from fonts already on my computer. Or does CC come with fonts? The path says "Unknown: Font missing"
Use Spotlight on your Mac to search for the font name.
Thank you for your help! I searched but didn't find the font. I also searched other fonts and didn't find those either though. Weird...
Maybe I need to just switch fonts in the styles directory in Indesign. I guess I'm just worried it'll happen again down the road. I thought Helvetica CY was a fairly standard font.
I do appreciate your help!
YOu should avoid to use. T1 fonts and switch to OTF, as T1 support stops in modern OS.
I'm in the same boat. We have a really large document in Russian that was created with Helvetica CY and the only fix I found was to find a Snow Leopard install disk and pull the font from it - this worked when I was running Yosemite. Now with El Capitan it seems to have gone missing again, and the kicker is that the install file from snow leopard will no longer run. Pulling the font from an old packaged folder is a no go either, it will install but something's messed up - it only shows squares for characters...
If anyone knows of a fix please let me know, converting the font for several hundred pages is something I'd rather not do.
