times new roman does not display correct at frame maker,
when turnign to Myriad pro for example, special characters that appear as ? are correct,
but how can i have them correct at Times new roman font?
When FrameMaker displays a question mark for a character in one font that looks fine in some other font, it usually means, that this font is not able to display this character (because it does not provide a codepoint for this.
However, considering the two fonts in question (Times New Roman and Myriad Pro), this is not so likely.
Can you give some more information? What is the character in question?
of cource, romanian word "Puneți" displays special character ț as an ? at times new roman font
This is strange. “ț” should display fine in Times New Roman. Did you double check that there is no special font override and that it's actually "Times New Roman" and not "Times"?
Old Type1 font "Times" does not have CE characters. Only Times New Roman has.
yes i did,,,,i even tried saving as an erlier version of fm but nothig seems to be working,,,
i don't have same issue with other languages with special characters also using times new roman
I have just tested it here, and the ț looks just as it should with Times New Roman. As expected. Romanian is no Problem with FrameMaker.
Is the problem only with the ț or also with other special characters?
with another one also
i think it has to do with my pc maybe?
but it would be for all languages with special charactes,,,,whouldnt it?
Not necessarily. My hunch is, that your version of Times New Roman is somehow messed up.
Can you delete Times New Roman (C:\Windows\Fonts -> Select Times New Roman, delete) on your PC and re-install it from a second one? You might need to close all Programs to be able to delete Times New Roman.
re: My hunch is, that your version of Times New Roman is somehow messed up.
My hunch is that it's a legacy TrueType TNR that only populates 8-bits of codepoint space.
Recent versions of Windows, alas, refuse to show basic file information about installed fonts, like size and timestamp.
Character Map might provide a clue, but it has a tendency to lie - apparently synthetically populating some codepoints above U+00FF for fonts which in fact have nothing up there.
I have a similar problem: my modifications in Times New Roman in Adobe are displaying as "1". If I copy and paste them in Word, it still shows the entire text, but not in adobe.
I tried to delete Times New Roman font from my computer but I got an error message saying that this font is protected. Any other suggestion on how I can reconnect adobe to this font?
Thank you for your help.
Find the version of Times New Roman that you have:
Now go to this URL:
In the Other versions section, click on your version number. The page is updated. The Unicode Ranges and Code Pages sections indicate which glyphs are available.
thank you sooooooooooooo much
Have you been able to solve the problem with his answer? If so, it would be great if you would mark his answer as "Correct Answer" 🙂
When I click on this link it no longer shows a version list.
I have the same issue as the person who started this thread.
But I am not in Frame Maker, I am in Adobe Pro DC. Maybe I should open a new thread...
