Hello,

I've a strange problem:

I use the Google Font "Lora" in InDesign:

When I export the file in a pdf-document, the ":" and ";" are wrong (see the screnshot).

This is only the case in InDesign, all other Software (Illustrator, PowerPoint, Word...) don't have this error.

Does anyone know a solution?

I work on a MacMini M1 (this happens also on Intel iMac) with InDesign 2022 Vers. 17.0.1.Bildschirmfoto 2021-12-17 um 11.11.57.jpg

Hi Thomas,

I suspect a bug with InDesign version 17.0.1.

 

There are a lot of cases now in the InDesign forum where similar issues were discussed.

With a big variety of TrueType fonts downloaded from e.g. Google Fonts.

Fonts that had no issue before in earlier versions of InDesign ( or InDesign 17.0.1 on a Windows machine ) .

 

In principal there is nothing wrong with the TrueType font files.

 

The solution was to uninstall and re-install the fonts files again.

Or to make them available through

Is LORA an OT Font? Could you please try to delete/deactive the Google Font and then use this one?

Dear Joely,

 

Thank you very much for the link; my font was an "ttf" font.

The adobe "otf" font works fine!

Or to make them available through a Document fonts folder or the Fonts folder of the InDesign application.

 

To substitute them with the Adobe Fonts equivalent is quiet the same:

A new install or activation process in the case of Adobe Fonts.
