Hi,  does anyone know a way around one document I got from a MAC user I am using on my PC that had fonts no longer available since Jan 1st which even though I have replaced all unaccepted fonts still wont allow me to create a PDF.  Any hints much appreciated!!!  Louise

You can use Package option to hunt for all used fonts - you don't have to finalise packaging - just use Fonts section.

Type1 font support has stopped.

Can you share a screenshot of the InDesign's Fonts Window? Tyoe > Find/Replace Fonts...

 

Can you indicate the PDF settings you use and the error message you get when PDF export fails?

A missing font will not stop you from creating a PDF and Type 1 Mac fonts NEVER worked on Windows so I suspect you have some other kind of issue here. 

 

What happens when you try to export the file?
