Windows 10 (ugh...) IDCS6 Fonts are Helvetica versions that look like this: HV______.PFB and HV______.PFM
I copied the fonts from my old computer to the new one and placed them in the CompositeFonts folder in InDesign. Works fine until I close the software. Upon opening it again, all of those fonts are missing. The problem is that all of my work is in that font, and because it is all approved by customers, if I change it, I have to have them approve it all over again. I need those fonts to just stay put. Why would they disappear? Any idea of how to get them to remain in that folder? When I try to install them in the regular font folder, it tells me the PFB fonts cannot be installed and the PFM fonts are already there, but they are not showing up.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Well, CS6 is unsupported under Windows 10 so I can’t eliminate some type of incompatibility there.
You could try creating a document fonts folder in each folder where the InDesign file resides and see if that helps, but for the most part I would avoid using Type 1 fonts. There are ton of OpenType Helvetica fonts that should prove acceptable and probably indiscernible from the version you’re using now.
Thanks, Bob. I showed your answer to my IT guy here and he is running my software with Windows 7 compatibility, which has fixed the problem. I appreciate your insight. I bought CS6 about a month before I found out about CC, and my budget won't allow me to purchase new software for a few years yet, so I am stuck with CS6. I'm marking this answered because the problem has been corrected. Thanks again!
