I open an old document, and the font is open. When I copy a text box into a new document, the font is no longer open.
Also, if I make a save as of my first document and reopen it, the font is not open.
Could it be because my initial document is 2017 and my new ones are 2018?
I tried to save in idml but it does not change anything.
Forgive my spelling mistakes, English is not my first language.
Open up the folder containing the file that opens up correctly. Is there a folder called Document Fonts in there there?
So that's what's going on. When a completed InDesign document is packaged, InDesign collects the fonts used and puts them in a Document Fonts folder. When someone else opens the file, if they don't own the font, InDesign will check the Document Fonts folder and will use the font correctly within that one file. That's why it is working within the one file, but not the other.
Professional fonts are licensed to individuals (or companies). The next step is to look online for the font and acquire it legally. This may be free—your CC subscription comes with access to many Typekit fonts. Other websites have fonts in the public domain. Otherwise, to avoid running into legal trouble, purchase the font, download and install it.
Ok, thank you very much !
You are very welcome.
So this font won't even work opening the document within my designer's folder. The fonts have to work outside of the folder anyway since we are importing into a magazine. Never had this issue until I upgraded to Adobe Cloud CS 2018. Help?

Is it a document that you have received in a package? The package would have the .indd and .idml....
I am having the same problem - thought it was just on my iMac with old operating system since latest creative suite updates. But on new MacBook two jobs with same font one works other says font is missing. Im tearing my hair out with same issues!
