indesign specific font related problems

indesign specific font related problems

indesign specific font related problems

(OP)
how come that some fonts which are displayed correct in other adobe programs, but aren't displayed in indesign. Or some fonts (like microsoft sans serif) only have a regular setting and not a bold setting. (while they do have these settings in photoshop and illustrator)

How can I change these settings or is their a work around

thx

RE: indesign specific font related problems

InDesign won't fake a typeface...in other words, if you don't have a bold or italic version of a font installed on your system, the application won't fake it.

RE: indesign specific font related problems

There is a reckless workaround: add a stroke to the text to make it bold.  

It is best to have the font variations installed.

well the funny thing is that their is a bold version of the font I want to use in photoshop, M$word and illustrator, however this option for this font is NOT in indesign.
That I don't get, (cause the fonts are installed on my system)

RE: indesign specific font related problems

Try quitting ID, finding all occurences of adobefnt.lst on your computer - - and deleting them.  This will rebuild your font list when ID starts again.

RE: indesign specific font related problems

Indesign ver 2 works well on my G4 operating on system 9.2, if I switch to system 10.2 all the submenus and pallettes are in japanese not english. The main menu bar across the top of the window is english as well. Any ideas on how to correct this.

RE: indesign specific font related problems

How about a new thread?

What OSX version are you using? 10.2.6?

What ID are you using? 2.0.2?
