    Set Font Fall Through

    cwjohnson

      I am scripting something that uses some set paragraph and character styles. These are using fonts that cannot change in general, but sometimes I run into special characters that do not appear in the font. How do I set it so the text defaults to one font but falls through to another if the character is not available?

          Here is a sample solution of replace missing characters font.

          app.findGlyphPreferences = null;
          app.findGlyphPreferences.glyphID = 0; //glyphID 0 = Missing Character
          app.findGlyphPreferences.appliedFont = app.fonts.item ("TARGET_FONT");
          var targetCharacters = app.findGlyph(); // targetCharacters : Array of Characters
          for (var i=0;i<targetCharacters.length;i++) targetCharacters[i].appliedFont = app.fonts.item("REPLACE_FONT")
