So, I have an ID file, created by someone else, that when I open it gives the warning that 471 fonts are missing! Using Find/Replace it seems to list every instance of, for example Source Sans Pro Bold, as a seperate font. I've tried to shift click all instances in the list then replace, but it only seems to change a single instance. Anyone know of a way to replace ALL in one go? Cheers AP
Open the Find/Replace
go to the GREP
In the change format - click the empty box
Select the font you want.
Search entire document including master pages
If it's included in Paragraph/Character or other styles you have a bit of work to do.
Source Sans Pro (TT) should be available at Google Fonts:
Download the font files and put them in a Document fonts folder.
Position that folder in the folder where your InDesign document is saved.
Quit InDesign, restart InDesign, open the document again.

That's not necessary, Uwe. InDesign will pick up the folder after a second or two. No need even to close the document.
but I have mixed feelings (and experiences) with that.
At least closing the document and re-open it is the safe way to go, I think.

An update, for anyone interested. If I open an .idml file of the document, then this doesn't have the same problem with fonts. 🥳
That is really very strange. But lucky for you.
And after saving of this idml as new .indd it all ok?
Yes, all fine once saved as .indd Seems to be something to do with InDesign versions, the document was created in 15.1, I'm opening in 17.2.1
I requested the .idml from the person that created it, but it also seems to work if I save as .idml myself, then open the idml.
