How to Identified CJK font

There is any option to Identified CJK fonts in font properties. Recently I Create InDesign package, in that Arial Unicode fonts not collect in font package, because of CJK font. Or Please let us know how to identify CJK font. 

 

Thanks

You can determine which language the font supports by looking at the name table, but this is uncommon because you have to look inside the font file.
Usually, you can preview and check it on the OS or use a font management tool. Also, fonts such as CJKV contain more than 10,000 glyphs, so you may find it by looking at the file size.
The following is the script lookup of the name table.

When you select the font you want to check by executing it from InDesign or Illustrator, the code table of which language is included is listed as follows.

Arial Unicode is a CJK font for sure.

I wondered if you were looking for an explanation of what is a CJK font?

Hi together,

yes, it would be good to know what the criteria for InDesign's Package for Print feature are regarding CJK fonts.

Is it the number of glyphs in the font? Or the file size of the font? Something else?

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

CJK stands for Chinese/Japanese/Korean and so a CJK font is just a font with Chinese, Japanese or Korean characters in it. These fonts often have very restricted licenses, and are very large (tens of megabytes) and are can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. (They are not a different kind of font). So for practical reasons, and to protect against very expensive mistakes, such fonts are not packaged. Arial Unicode set out to have all Unicode characters. While Microsoft gave up on that idea some time ago, it certainly contains Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters, and I'd suggest you find a different font, without Unicode in the name.
