Replacing missing fonts with the font manager (split)


Recommended Posts

I think Font Manager just reports what fonts are missing and what it has "replaced" them with.

To actually deal with the missing fonts message you either need to install the missing fonts into Windows or do a find and replace to change the missing font to whatever replacement font you want to use permanently

Well, I installed the substitution font (it's identical to the origninal, it's just a different name) and switched the substitution font from arial (automatic set bey AP) to the one I wanted to use instead. I expect AP to replace the missing font when I am able to select a substitution font, what I did. At least it should change the substition font to the new one. But the fonts in the document don't change. I really had to select every single textbox and change their font manually.
I expected the font manager to work the same way as the ressource manager does.

It's under "TEXT"

It's also the standard Ctrl+F (Cmd on Mac), or View > Studio > Find and Replace.

In my experience the Missing will still be reported if there are empty text frames. And if there are Paragraph or Character styles asking for them. These are not taken care of by Find and Replace.

I wish the Font Manager way of dealing with Missing Fonts dialogue had a Nuclear option.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
