The importance of fonts in desktop publishing and page layout design cannot be overstated. Fortunately, InDesign offers a range of powerful options for managing fonts with ease. In this article, we will delve into the process of finding and replacing fonts, as well as share some amazing tips and tricks.


Check the list of Fonts used in a document:-

Open the InDesign file. Go to Type > Find/Replace Font, and you will get the list of fonts used in the file. Click the Font name to see where that specific font is used.


Replace Fonts:-

In the Find/Replace Font dialog. Select the font in the Font Information section, specify the desired font details in the Replace With Section, and then select Change, Change all or Change/Find.


Tips & Tricks to Find & Replace Fonts:-

  • Select Redefine Style When Changing All to redefine a Paragraph Style or Character Style that includes the font.
  • To change fonts in imported graphics, use the program that initially exported the graphic, and then replace the graphic or update the link using the Links panel.
  • You can open the Find/Replace Font dialog while viewing a document’s preflight. In the Preflight dialog, switch to the Fonts tab and select Find/Replace Font.
  • To view the system folder where a font is installed, select the font in the Find/Replace Font dialog and select Reveal In Explorer (Windows) or Reveal In Finder (macOS).
  • A font name is listed once for its use in the layout and listed each time in imported graphics. For example, if you use the same font three times in the layout and three times in imported graphics, it will be listed four times in the Find/Replace Font dialog.
  • If fonts are not embedded in graphics, the font name may not be listed in the Find/Replace Font dialog.
  • Find/Replace Font isn't available in a Story Editor window.
  • You can find and change composite fonts, but you can’t change component fonts that are part of composite fonts.
  • A font may be listed as Unknown if the selected graphic file doesn’t contain the font information. You can’t view Fonts in bitmap graphics (such as TIFF images) in the list as they aren’t true characters.
