Hello. I am using Illustrator CS3 on a Windows 10 system. I created an Illustrator file for a window decal a year or so ago, but we weren't ready yet to actually use the decal. I opened the Illustrator file today and got the dreaded "missing font" message. The font in question is Rochester-Regular, an OTF file. I looked in my system font file and only Adobe fonts were listed. (What happened to all my other files?!?! Did they disappear in a Windows upgrade?)
I went out on the internet, found the font file, and downloaded and installed it in the Windows font file and it shows up in the directory there.
Still does not show up in Illustrator. I tried using Find File in Illustrator to search the System fonts and the font was not found. I downloaded the font from a different website with the same result. I rebooted, still no luck.
In my research on the internet, one solution was to install the file in the directory Windows\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts. I did not have this subfolder, so I created it and copies the font into the new folder. This didn't work either.
If I open the file in Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, it displays correctly. The problem is that I need to send the AI file to a service provider for tweaking and printing.
How can I get this font to display in Illustrator?
