Hi everyone, I'm trying to edit a template and link all the missing fonts but I can't seem to change the font or do the find/replace font for this graphic font.

Does anyone know any fix about this?

You cannot Find/Replace fonts in placed graphics; only InDesign-created objects.What kind of files are these graphics?? Can you open them?

You fix each graphic, and relink it. You need to use the original app, because only it knows about your constraints on the text (such as margins, scaling, flow, hyphenation...)

What kind of graphics do we talk about?

What is the creator application?

This is normally what one would see if you place something like:

a) PDFs/EPSs that do not have the fonts embedded;

b) Live type copied and pasted from Illustrator

 

If you have the fonts as you say and have loaded them AND they are the same FORMAT as used in the graphic, everything should resolve. If not, it probably won't match. in which case your only recourse is to resolve the issues by editing the graphics. e.g. If it's a PDF and you DO have the fonts that haven't embedded, there are ways to fix that with a Preflight Fixup in Acrobat to embed them.
