Hi Summayah5FC7,

there are already some threads with similar issues in the forum.

I think we see a bug here.

 

What you could try:

[1] Uninstall the font files from your system and reinstall them.

[2] Or uninstall the font files from your system and move them to the Fonts folder of the InDesign Application folder.

Could be that you need admin rights to do that.

If options [1] and [2] will not work move the font files to a Document fonts folder you add to the folder that contains your document. The document will see the fonts in that folder and will access them.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

The font i used was called noto naskh arabic and was installed as a variable font.

 

After a couple of attempts. I tried to uninstall and reinstall as a static font which solved the issue.

 

Thank you.
