We have a client that's been sending us InDesign file using the Symbol Std font for years and have never had a problem.
All of a sudden InDesign isn't seeing that font no matter what we do. We've deleted the cache files in C:\Users\util3.WIN7ULT_03\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 17.0\en_US\Caches\TypeSupport, we've deleted what cache files we could (some were in use though all Adobe apps including the CC app were closed) from C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local per this web page, and also tried putting the font in this folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign 2022\Resources\Required\Fonts.
MS Word and Illustrator can see and use the font just fine, but all of a suden InDesign won't see it.
Thanks for any ideas,
What is your InDesign and OS version? This issue has been been reported recently in 17.1 and 17.2 version of InDesign by other users as well. See the following link for more details
If this is your case as well then as a workaround you may revert to a previous version untill this is fixed.
We have 3 computers that have the problem, all are Windows 10, Version 21H2, OS build 19044.1645 (most recent, I think), all InDesign 17.2.
Reverted one of them back to the 17.0.1 per your link and that font can be seen and used. As of yet, we've not found any other fonts that are being ignored.
I voted on that but report page. Will that email me when there's a fix?
Yes, you should get an update on the progress of the bug as upvoting would have subscribed your email. This bug has been widely reported so I presume this will be taken up at the earliest and should be resolved in the next update.
Any idea of the most recent up date for InD was supposed to fix this issue?
For the Symbol Std font we're having trouble with it did not.
As per the latest update, the issue should be fixed. Did you try the remedy recommended if the new update does not fix the issue? I quote below the message posted on the bug by an Adobe employee
We've just released InDesign 17.2.1 version which addresses this issue.
Please update to this latest version using Creative Cloud Desktop application.
In case the fix does not work immediately for you, please try the following:
1) Quit InDesign.
2) Delete the following:
Relaunch InDesign & see if it works properly now.
If doing the above still does not work for you then please add a comment to the uservoice ticket.
