I have activated fonts on CC for the ones in my documents that are Type 1. How do I change the Type 1's, it does not seem to be done autmatically since a listing from the PDF shows that that they are still Type 1.
There are specific programs which can do that, but often it is not covered by the license agreement and often it might change the font.
But OTF can contain up to 65.000 glyphs, T1 only 255, so it is worthy to license new OTF.
If you mean you now have both T1 and OTF versions of the font and want to use the OTF version, go to Type > Find Font and change them there.
Acrobat will continu to show postscript flavored OTF fonts as Type 1 in the font properties, butif the font name is correct (presumably Std or Pro), the the correct font is being used.
Yes, I meant that. But it seems that when I activated CC fonts, the Type 1 ones disappeared from the Find Font dialog. I assume this means that the occurences of Type 1's were replaced automatically?
Fonts are never replaced automatically in InDesign (unlike some other apps which will make substitutions without even telling you).
Fonts are often converted to type 1 when a PDF is made. This is normal and will still work. You CANNOT use a PDF to find whether your installed fonts are type 1...
Thanks much, I didn't know that. One wonders: if Type 1 is so old and rusty, why does PDF still conert to them (secretly 🙂 )
PDF is now an international standard, not just an Adobe proprietary format, so there are lots of legacy requirements, and the OTF format is really, as I understand things, a wrapper for either underlying True-Type or Type1 format fonts.
