There must be some other problem with the font, or with your setup. I'm having no problems displaying a PostScript (Type 1) font in InDesign 2020 15.1.1 and macOS 10.15.6 (Catalina). See below:

Try a different PostScript font, or place it in InDesign's application Fonts folder.

Hallo LordRaven,

 

Du versuchst die Schriften über ein Document fonts-Verzeichnis verfügbar zu machen.

Liegt dieses Verzeichnis im gleichen Verzeichnis wie die geöffnete InDesign-Datei?

 

Funktioniert die Bereitstellung der Schriften mit einer früheren Version von InDesign?

 

Teste das mal, indem Du eine IDML-Datei schreibst, die IDML-Datei mit InDesign version 14 oder vorher öffnest, ein Dokument mit neuem Namen in dem Verzeichnis speicherst, das das Document fonts-Verzeichnis enthält.

Wichtig: dann die Datei schließt und wieder öffnest, sodass InDesign die Chance bekommt, das Document-fonts-Verzeichnis auszulesen.

 

Gruß,
Uwe Laubender

Adobe announced end of support for PostScript Type 1 fonts. 

I work for 
FontLab, we make the eponymous FontLab pro font editor. We have also created TransType 4, an easy-to-use converter for macOS and Windows. A few days ago I made a video that shows you how you can use TransType to convert your obsolete (but still valuable) Mac or Windows PostScript Type 1 fonts into cross-platform OpenType PS (.otf) fonts that will work in all Adobe (and other) apps: https://youtu.be/j06_QuBwy7Y 

TransType is a good solution if your font’s EULA or your local law allows you to convert the font to a more modern format, and of course if you have Type 1 fonts for which OpenType versions are not available. 

Convert legacy Type 1 fonts to modern OpenType with TransType 4Buy or try #TransType at http://transtype.infoIn 2023, PostScript Type 1 fonts will stop worki...
