All of a sudden fonts ae not working with InDesign. I use InDesign CC 2022 and Suitcase Fusion.
I've had no issues with fonts at all. Then, all of a sudden I open a file that I worked on yesterday and the fonts won't activate in InDesign. Suitcase has the font turned on but the font does not show up in INDD font list. However, the font shows up in Illustrator.
Its not all fonts, just some. But a lot of them. And its fonts that I use everyday.
I using MacOS Catalina and the most recent update of InDesign and Suitcase Fusion.
Any ideas where to start or is it an InDesign issue?
I am also having this problem. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled, added to the Indesign Fonts folder, and more. Nothing works. Help would be greatly appreciated as I need these fonts for my work. Thank you.
It is an InDesign issue. If you are using version 17.2, try downgrading to 17.0.1 since that has resolved the issue for several people on this forum so far. We patiently await a real fix from Adobe for version 17.2.
If it is in connection with Suitcase you should ask them if an update to their font manager ist available. It is not an Adobe Issue.
It most definitely IS an Adobe issue. As I posted in a previous thread, the fonts activate successfully in Suitcase and are visible to Illustrator and Photoshop and other applications. Taking Suitcase out of the equation and loading fonts into Font Book and other 3rd party font managers, InDesign 17.2 still did not see the fonts even when a proper Document Fonts folder was available as well. So it remains an Adobe issue.
If you have a Documents Fonts Folder it should use that first - and if the font is loaded in other locations it could be clashing.
However, I'm seeing this reported everywhere
So best to log it as a bug

Other things that might fix it
Try resetting your preferences:
The easiest way to reset everything is to delete the InDesign preferences: as soon as InDesign starts to boot hold down Shift, Alt, Ctrl (and Apple/Cmd if working on a Macintosh). A dialog will appear asking to delete the InDesign Preferences, select 'Yes' on this dialog.

We are sorry for the trouble. We are able to replicate the issue at our end with multiple fonts on v17.2 & in some instances, on v17.1 as well. We have logged a bug a with the product team last week, and they are currently investigating the issue on a priority.
I would request you to upvote this UserVoice (https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/44970238-installed-font...) if not done already. By doing this, you will keep on getting updates related to this issue.
Also, if possible, please share the download link to the fonts which are not showing up in Indesign here or via DM with me.
In the meantime, you may install the older version of Indesign v17.0.1 or earlier until this issue gets fixed.
I went and upvoted on UserVoice.
I did download 17.0.1 and it has worked, except for one or two fonts.
But I can get around those at the moment - I just have to use Illustrator for anything involving those fonts.
We appreciate your patience. The issue is fixed with the latest InDesign version (17.2.1). Please update InDesign to the latest version and see if that helps.
If you still experience the issue on the 17.2.1 version, then please try resetting the preferences. It will fix the issue.
Let us know if you need further assistance. We'd be happy to help.
