I have an InDesign file that I'm trying to export to PDF. Everything looks great in InDesign, but when I export to PDF none of the bullets or en dashes show up in the PDF.
I'm using Helvetica for the font; the problem does not seem to occur if I change the font. Helvetica is installed in /System/Library/Fonts, and printing to PDF from other applications works fine with Helvetica as the font.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this?
Helvetica is a Mac dfont system font. Have you considered using Helvetica Neue instead?
Did you placed file word with automatic bulleted lists?
For automatic bulleted lists Word use a different font (symbol for example) and this could create problems in indesign.
You could place file word in indesign by converting bulleted lists in text and then with find-change you could replace missing glyph.
Or in Word you could replace the font used for automatic lists
Or create new bulleted lists in indesign
