Loaction of the InDesign fonts folder (Destination):

  • macOS: /Applications/Adobe InDesign 2021/Fonts
  • Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign 2021\Fonts

 

Let us know if that helps resolving the issue or if you still need assistance. We'de be happy to help!

Does Avenir appear in other Adobe applications or in Microsoft? Do you use a font manager? Can you see it in Finder when you go to 

  • /System/Library/Fonts/ ?

 

Avenir is preinstalled on Mac, but not on Windows. What is your platform?

 

 

EDIT: @Srishti Bali posted while I was still looking for the path.
