Missing Myriad Pro Light Vietnamese glyphs

I’m working on a Vietnamese document in InDesign, and have no problem using Myriad Pro Regular or a few other weights, but many Vietnamese characters do not appear in the glyphs palette for Myriad Pro Light (characters with specific diacriticals. Anyone know why that’s the case? And oddly enough, the characters seem to work fine in Word. I even bought a clean version, thinking maybe my font was corrupted, but the issue remains even though the glyphs are in the character list on the vendor website (myfonts.com).

For background information, it is impossible to use Word to check this. Word has a feature where, if a font does not contain a character, it will look through specific fonts on your system to find another font, and will substitute silently. This idea terrifies professional typesetters, so Adobe products never do this. If you are in Windows try the Character Map applet to check included characters.

Hi there,

I un- and reactivated the whole Myriad Pro font family and it solved the problem.

By @lhwohl

 

The reason is that the glyphs are not there is that the type designer(s) did not create them. In the case of Myriad Pro, the designers are Carol Twombly and Robert Slimbach and the typeface is from Adobe Originals.

Since Myriad Pro and the other 40 variations are Adobe Originals and part of Adobe Fonts, I'll move your post to Adobe Fonts for you.

 

 

Learn about Adobe Originals here:

https://fonts.adobe.com/foundries/adobe

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity.

 

Today the Type team’s mission is to make sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.

Hi @lhwohl, could you please let me know which version of InDesign you are using and which glyphs specifically are not working for you? The Myriad Pro Light from Adobe Fonts in the latest InDesign (2023) is currently working for me with Vietnamese characters. Thanks!
