Has anyone experienced the <default font> character tag suddenly disappear from the list? It seems to be an FM thing, not a template issue. I'm using FM 2017.

Take a look at the options in the Character catalog pod and switch to Show all.

Does it work?

What menu or palette has it vanished from?

If the Character Format dialog, that looks like a difficult scenario to trigger. <Default ¶ Font> is actually not a tag. It's not in the <FontCatalog (nor would it be expected to be, as "applying" it removes formats).

Which is also to say that trying to fix it by manually adding Default ¶ Font to the catalog, with no attributes set, won't work. Applying it would just apply a named but As-Is empty tag, and remove nothing (assuming that FM even allows you to add what may be a reserved tag name to the ƒCatalog).

I lost it from the character catalog (screenshot below) and from the quick format (F8). I can still get to it the long way (Format > Characters). Is there a way to repopulate it to the catalog??

Hi Mingf:

If you still haven't resolved this, please share a screen shot of your Character Catalog. (Format > Characters > Catalog)

Perhaps I can give you a helping hand. In my actual project the overzealous Template Designer created a new <Default ¶ Font> as character tag. Now I have two of them :

But as Bob wrote, only the first <Default ¶ Font> is needed, the second is needless and bewildering.
