unable to change fonts - indesign 6
Posted on 2013-01-09
I am trying to work on an indesign file, every time I try to open the file it gives msg saying missing fonts. Unfortunately the typesetter who sent the file dint package the necessary fonts. We tried replacing the fonts it worked fine. After the holidays, I saw this updates waiting to be installed, after installing the update we get this message 'missing fonts' 406 missing fonts but I replaced 404 fonts leaving 2 of them which we couldn't replace at all.
At first I thought it was the updates I did to the system - I lost connectivity to networks for a while there - but have since fixed that. I also updated my entire Adobe suite and that hasn't done anything either
I tried to export it as an IDML and it crashes. The 'missing' fonts are: Clarendon BT Heavy and Minion Pro Heavy. They should be Minion Pro Regular, which is what our designer changed it to before she left
So I tried to trash the preferences, but nothing happened
Also now when I try to change the fonts (with or without the old preferences), all of the type around it changes to Batang Regular and I can't change it back. I have no idea why, possibly this is also what the typesetter originally used?
The whole document is 200 pages long,
