It’s retty simple. This document was created using fonts that aren’t installed on your system. I see that you have some version of Minion Pro, but the name of the one installed it slightly different than the one used. In the document there is “Minion-Pro-Italic” but the font you have installed (and is not missing at the top of the window) is “MinionPro-Regular”. This might mean the font is different or just that it has been named differently but is identical. If you use the bottom of the window and replace Minion-Pro-Italic with MinionPro-Italic (assuming it is installed) then you will probably be fine. You might also have a Symbol font installed iwth a name slightly different from teh one used in the document.

 

The first thing I would do is check the folder the document in is to see if there is a Fonts folder with the missing fonts available, then install them on my system. I would also contact the supplier of the file and ask for a package to be saved. This copies the file, all links, and all fonts to a folder.

Can you open the .eps file that contains them? If you can, you can likely resolve the missing fonts there, and either resave the file as is, or even convert the text to outlines if it's simple enough. I suspect it's an older file or one from a different system and it may be just a matter of differences in naming conventions (as both fonts are pretty common and readily available anyway). If you try make a PDF of that file now, what happens?

Hi roaringmousegraphics,

theoretically that could be a solution, but this would cut InDesign from interacting with MathType.

One could even edit the PostScript code with placed and embedded EPS files and do that automatically by scripting, but then it is a problem to update formulas done with MathType.

Ah, I missed the MathType part of this.

 

Another way to handle this is to PDF the EPS. If the OP has full Acrobat, they could try open the EPS in Acrobat (which will launch Distiller and generate a PDF), then place that in InDesign. If there are truly fonts missing, there will be an error, of course, but it's possible to create a font substitution rule in Distiller to, say, swap the "missing" Minion reference to one you actually have, and same with Symbol.

Don't use EPS !!!

It's an obsolete, outdated format, unsuitable for modern software and which creates problems that do not exist with modern formats.

Hi JR_Boulay,

with some versions of MathType ( with all versions? I did not check this. ) you have no choice but using EPS for seamlessly interacting between MathType and InDesign.

Here are some ideas about the issue from the MathType side of things: http://support.inera.com/support/solutions/articles/11000075632-mathtype-equations-are-correct-in-my...

This is not the issue here. If these are legacy files, there may be no option than EPS. In any case, there is nothing at all wrong using EPS in a modern workflow. I still do, along with all other formats. Just because using .ai is a better solution for current Adobe workflows does not mean I am going to go back and resave all my legacy files.

Hi together,

as long as MathType is not able to embed fonts working cross-platform or cross-computer is a real drag.

 

There is no way to assign substitutions for missing fonts with placed EPS in InDesign's Find Font panel.

You must install the missing fonts and make them available to InDesign through the system, a Document fonts folder or the Fonts folder in the spplication folder of InDesign.

 

And even then:

Could be problematic if you have a different font version with the same name or if you work cross-platform.

 

Your best, perhaps only chance, to solve the issue:
[ 1 ] Stay on the operating system where the InDesign document was created.

[ 2 ] Try to get the font files that were actually used ( could be problematic for licensing reasons! )

[ 3 ] Install them so that InDesign is not issuing a "Missing Font" error.

Uwe Laubender

Hello!
I also have such a problem:
The image in ChemDraw was saved, Indesign prints a similar problem. I made it on my own machine, so it's the same font, yet it doesn't recognize it!
