Why is it changing all my text to a weird alien language? I'm trying to fix my rag and I can't even see what I'm doing now. Please help!
Is your screenshot showing the way that this looks in the InDesign file or is this a scan of a printout? If you're showing a printout then what does it look like in InDesign? Please be specific and provide details.
Try zooming in or out, or changing the page. Is the content normal again?
If not, please tell us what version of InDesign and what operating system.
Looks as if the font is damaged.
Try using a different font and see if the issue goes away.
If it does.
Try reinstall the font in question.
I agree, it looks like a damaged font, or maybe an alternate version of the same font is activated at the same time.
Remove the fonts, and only add the good one.
Alternativly, if the font is in the local "Document Fonts" folder, inDesign should activate that font (if the font is not activated by the OS already)
What version of InDesign?
What font type did you use?
Damaged INDD file?
Try to export as IDML then import back and save with new name.
