At my workplace we are using InDesign on Windows machines to edit files from a network location. A lot of different people can open and edit files.
My collegues are experiencing a lot of problems with fonts.
When opening a file, ID gives an error about missing fonts, even when this font is installed, for example:
Often it ask for i.e. an OTF font, while a TT font is installed. Why doesn't ID automatically pick the TT version?
All workstations have the same fonts installed, so I don't know why it's asking for a font of a different type.
Is there a solution to this problem?
If a font is missing, it's missing. If you want to use the TT version instead then you'll need to replace all instances of the other version.
Note that anyone opening the file on other machines, will get the same error.
If there's a full license for everyone then just install it on your machine.
