You've identified fonts in Adobe Fonts. You want a lock. Why? In what specific sense do you mean "protected"?
(The usual meaning for a font would apply to font licensing rights, such as not being available for PDF embedding. I think you mean something different).
I want to know, which (Adobe) fonts will not be exported by "Datei > Verpacken" (File > Packing (?)). Where I gat the .indd, .idml and all images plus non-protected fonts. When I know, which font is protected, I can subsitute these by OFL fonts before exporting.
I think, that place in the screenshot would be a cool place to show which font is protected/locked by Adobe.
Get the picture?
Not quite right 🙂
When you export .idml you can open it with QuarkXPress as well. And than are all Adobe Fonts missing.
See my German Tutorial about it: http://www.computergrafik-know-how.de/quarkxpress-oeffnet-indesign-datei/
The other way is using .pdf, but than you will get other problems, because in pdf you will get often one textframe for each line of text.
"When you export .idml you can open it with QuarkXPress as well. And than are all Adobe Fonts missing."
Not when Creative Cloud is installed on the same machine and the fonts are activated.

Sure. But I don't think, that not many people will have InDesign AND QuarkXPress on there computers.
I have and use both. 🙂
Anyway, thanks for the chat. I love the adobe forum and support. You are one of the best!
You're mostly right, Bob, but there is a case for knowing which fonts wont be packaged for archiving. Seems to me there is some history of Adobe dropping some fonts from the Cloud which could be a problem for someone opeing the file in the future. Is it fatal? No, since one could still do a font substitution at that time, but I sure wouldn't want to trust a brand-critical font to be cloud-based.
Might I suggest a cloud icon instead of a lock?
Well, yes, I do agree that a tabular representation of the Information of every used font would be helpful. I would not use a lock icon. Just the written information. And a sort function would be cool as well.
Just like we can customize the Links panel with tabular info about "Effective PPI" and other properties of an image.
