After compiling a book, I found the following in the FrameMaker Console:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker2015\fminit\PublisherThe "Arial Black" Font is not available.

  "Arial Black Heavy" will be used in this session.

The "Times" Font is not available.

  "Times New Roman" will be used in this session.

The "Arial Black" Font is not available.

  "Arial Black Heavy" will be used in this session.

I've searched through C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker2015\fminit\Publisher - there appear to be no fonts there.

What is the console trying to tell me?

That your FM docs contain references to those fonts, but that you don't have them installed. FM is guessing that its substitutions are correct, but it could be wrong.

Thanks.

I'm a bit confused as to why the console does not point to the offending fiiles, rather than some portion of FrameMaker's binaries?

How do I find which FM file or files have mis-named fonts?

Yes the console is cryptic - search the forum for "unavailable fonts" for suggestions on finding them & cleaning them out.

Use the Fonts pod to show you what's being used throughout a book. You can also do font substitutions from here.
