We have created items in InDesign for our charity using Old Bookman Style. However, when I went on InDesign recently to edit some work it seems that the font has disappeared. How can I get it back? It doesn't seem to be on adobe creative cloud. We really need this for the work otherwise we are going to have to stop using Indesign as all are work won't be consistent with our brand.

What operating system are you using? Is Bookman Old Style still available to other applications on this computer?

Macs have multiple folders to store fonts, including the three shown below. Where is Bookman Old Style Located on your Mac?

  • System > Library > Fonts
  • User > Library > Fonts
  • Application > InDesign CC 2019 > Fonts

 

Note that some of these folders are hidden by default. Command + Shift + Period is the Keyboard Shortcut for Toggling Hidden Files in Mac OS.

 

If you put a copy of your Bookman OS fonts into the InDesign font folder, InDesign should certainly see it.

Hi Barb! 

 

I have the same issue as the person above. I don't quite understand your guide here. Where should I start? Bookman Old Style is available in Word but not in InDesign. I can´t find it in the font book either, unfortunately.

Hi @Lovisa26109551yd5e ,

if it is available in Word, it could be that it is installed to a special place only Microsoft Office apps can access it.

Are you on Windows or are you on MacOS ? And waht's your version of InDesign? Do you have Admin rights to your machine?

Hi @Lovisa26109551yd5e:

 

It sounds like you're on a Windows computer? Try copying Bookman Old Style to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign 2022\Fonts to see if InDesign will recognize it. (I'm on a Mac but I'm fairly sure that is the correct path for Windows. For sure, put it in Fonts folder inside the InDesign application folder on your hard drive.)
