    Installing new fonts


      Does anyone know how to install new fonts in InDesign CS4? I've tried copying the font files into the fonts folder, but must be doing something wrong.  I'm relatively new to design work. Any help is greatly appreciated!

          InDesign should see any fonts that are installed normally on your sytem for use by all programs (you don't mention your OS, so I don't know how you would normally install fonts). There are also two special private folders, one for all Adobe apps, and one for InDesign alone, and copying a font into either of those folders should also work. Is this perhaps a Type 1 font and you only have half of it? Or perhaps you are trying to install a Mac font on Windows? That would be apparent if the font size in Explorer is listed as 0 bytes.
