Could it be, that you have filtered your fonts by clicking the favorite star or the typekit icon in the font menu?
At the moment the latest version is CC2015.2, soon will come CC2015.3 and in Summer we can expect CC2016.
No I checked and actually have never used the favorite star or typekit so not sure what they even do. I use FontBook. And although the full family of Benton Sans is installed (and by the way working fine last week) only the Benton Light shows up in INDD now for some strange reason. Any thoughts?
Clean the font caches on the Mac.
Thanks Peter but no go. This is what I did:
- Enter the following command at the prompt and press Return: atsutil databases -removeUser
- Enter the following command at the prompt and press Return: atsutil databases -shutdown
- Enter the following command at the prompt and press Return: atsutil databases -ping
- Quit TerminalUnfortunately the Benton Sans is still not showing in my InDesign files. But it is in Illustrator and all other applications. So Strange.
I'm not a Mac user, so I don't know if that actually clears the font caches. You can also try deleting any Adobefnt*.lst files, where * is a two-digit number.
where do I delete these files? And how are they related to font issues?
Those are the Adobe application font lists. Do a file search for adobefnt*.lst...
Rats! No go. Still not recognizing my Benton Sans when opening InDesign files.
Copy the font files to the Fonts folder in the InDesign application folder.
Here's more specific instructions on clearing your font cache.
First, uninstall the fonts from your computer and back them up elsewhere.
If you're on a Mac, use the tool FontNuke, then restart your computer, then reinstall the font. FontNuke can be downloaded here:
If you're on a PC, follow the steps below instead of using FontNuke, then restart your computer, then reinstall the font:
1. Go to Start > Search > Files and Folders.
2. Choose 'Files and Folders' and type 'Adobefnt*.lst' into the Name-text field.
3. Make sure to activate the checkboxes 'Search in system folders, Search for hidden files and folders' and 'Search in subfolders'. 4. Then click on 'Search'
5. Delete all .lst files listed.
Let me know if this helps.
Is all this necessary since it was working perfect last Friday and all other Adobe applications working fine with same font?? Just InDesign. Crazy.
I'm not sure what happened between Friday and this week, but it's possible that something on your machine has caused the font files to break. Clearing your font cache is the most common way to resolve this hiccup and/or determine whether there's a larger issue at hand.
Putting the fonts INTO the Indesign font folder did the trick... Although not sure why now all of a sudden I need to do this. NOTHING has changed on my computer, nothing new downloaded and nothing updated... Then all of a sudden one day, boom, no more Benton Sans font in InDesign... While all other Adobe products recognize it fine. Wish I knew the mystery behind this. To me this is a work around... Because InDesign should be pulling ALL fonts from my fontbook as all other apps on my drive are. ***Sigh.
Does anyone know of any apps (like FontNuke) that works on Yosemite? FontNuke not working for me on that version of OSX.
Thanks for your help.
