Which fonts did you use?
Thank you so much for your quick answer.
Instead of giving you an exact answer which fonts we are using and missing, I will give you all that we are missing:
They are all Adobe Fonts:
Alleycat ICG, ITC American Typrewriter, Americana, ITC Anna, Baker Signet, ITC New Bakerville, Bell Gothic, ITC Benguiat, Bickley Script, Birch, Blackoak, ITC Bookman, Caslon, Century Old Style, ITC Cheltenham, ITC Eras, ITC Espirit, ITC Fenice, ITC Flora, Fritz Quadrata, ITC Galliard, Adobe Garamond, ITC Giovanni, Isabella, ITC Kabel, Kaufmann, ITC Korinna, LetterGothic (T1), ITC Machine, Madrone, Myriad, Ocra, ITC Officina Sans, ITC Officina Serif, Orator, P22 Corinthia, Parisian, Park Avenue, Poplar, Rekord, Serpentine, ITC Slimbach, ITC Tiepolo, Trajan, ITC Veljovic, Wiesbaden Swing, Willow, Adobe Wood type
Good to know:
the fonts are not stored in C:/windows/fonts
Nor are they in adobe/indesign/fonts
And last, it was not possible to pack a file, with fonts, on the old computer, export via USB stick, and then import into MacOS. MacOS did not like the fonts at all.
I called Adobe support to make them give me a new license key so I could install CS3 on MacOS and thereby get the fonts but they refused.
Looking forward to your help!
You need to install them on the Mac. None of the fonts ship with InDesign or Creative Suite, AFAIK.
If they’re OpenType and I suspect they are, you should have no problem installing and using them.
Thank you Bob for your quick answer!
In our font folders we have three different types of fonts:
TT, O and a
It seems to us that we have been able to migrate all the TT´s and O´s.
However, all the a´s we do not know where they are, nor can we import them into MacOS after we have packed them in InDesign Windows Version.
Any new ideas that can help me?
You cannot move Type 1 fonts from Windows to Mac under ordinary conditions. However you can copy those fonts to the InDesign/Fonts folder where they will be accessible to InDesign.
The "a's" are PostScript Type 1 fonts. They are not compatible between Mac and Windows.
It worked!!! You made our day!!!
Thank you Bob!!!
By the way, have you heard about any problem that can occur when having the font in the InDesign folder instead of in the MacOS font folder?
And thank you Steve who really gave good and fast answers.
By the way, do you know where the a-fonts are stored?
Would save me a lot of time.
Should be in the Windows fonts folder.
And no, I know of no specific issues doing this.
Interestingly enough, they are not there. Or I shall say, I can not see them. Are they hidden somehow?
Check the Indesign Fonts folder, and the Adobe common files fonts folder, too. But if they show up in programs like Word, they are inthe Windows fonts folder, either as copies of the font, or as shortcuts to the actual fonts, and you can find the real location by checking the shortcut properties.
Thank you Peter!
They do not show up in Word.
Do you at all know where the Adobe Common Files Fonts folder should be?
I have only looked in C:/Program/Adobe/* folders and can not find any such folder there?
In indesign fonts folder I can not find them at all...
What version of Windows? 32 or 64 bit?
Search the system for *.pfm and *.pfb. You’ll need both files for each font.
I think I found them. WIll check tomorrow. Their names do not at all look like the names they have in InDesign.
Thanks to you all guys I believe I solved it.
I am very greateful to all of you.
Thank you and good night.
