Hi, Im working on a book with several chapters that was created a couple of years ago. Opening up this book dokument I first had a varning that it included Type 1 typefaces that won't be supported by Adobe in/after 2023, and that they should preferably be exchanged to another type. I wasn't sure how to go about changing all of it so called Adobe support. The support helped out and it looked like it was all good. But now when I select text it seems like its still the Type 1 version (from the scroll down list of fonts.) Unfortunatly, the Adobe support closed the blue warning message (that I had intended to keep) so I can't see the warning about what typefaces may be in Type 1 anymore. He also informed it that it was a one-time-message and wouldn't come back.
Do you have any suggestions to how : 1/ I can control if/where I still have Type 1 typefaces in this large document (more than 10 chapters and interviews, 200 pages)? 2/ How I go about changing them everywhere in as easy a way as possible? ( I m thinking I must go into my paragraph malls and change each and every one of them and then syncronize all chapters). But am afraid this will create a lot of work later due to the changes.

to get this message back: Quit InDesign, trash the InDesign preferences, restart InDesign.
Better: Check under Type > Find/Change Fonts…
There you can see if any Type 1 fonts are used in your document.
From my German InDesign:
In this case the count of Type 1 fonts used on text in the document is exactly zero.
My Find/Change Fonts… panel is telling me this. Trust this panel!
The blue message bar however is misleading. There is one Type 1 font used in a not-used Character Style.
Find/Change Fonts… cannot see this. The other 36 Type 1 font styles were used in the past, but are not used anymore. Still the message detects the old entries somewhere in the document's code.
