I just bought new fonts. Open type fonts (otf), but still I get the message in InDesign that these fonts won't be supported from 2023. What can I do? I need these fonts for my client.

Opentype and Truetype fonts will continue to be supported. It's Type 1 fonts that being discontinued.

 

Where did you get the idea that it was OTF?

Thanks for your answer. I feel reassured that finally the new otf-fonts I just bought will still be supported from next year.

I know this isn't encouraging to hear, but Adobe's "Font Alert" setup is faulty. If you have bought honest-to-God cross-platform compatible Open Type Fonts, you're all set. No matter what Adobe's alerts are currently telling you.

 

The thing I don't understand is why they allow the bad alert system to persist when they can remove it with a running update and replace it when it's finally fixed. Maintaining the current faulty "solution" serves no one, and makes no sense at all.

 

You can rest assured, even as Adobe keeps pulling the false alarm.
