How does one turn off unwanted fonts in Indesign? I have never activated the "Noto" font, yet there is an extensive list of its families in the character menu. It does not appear in Suitcase Fusion; it is as available listed in the Adobe Fonts in Creative Cloud. Is it automatically activated? Why? Scanning past useless fonts is an enormous waste of time.

Unfortunately the fonts in question are within the Apple system, and are inexplicably required (Armenian? Really?). They don't appear in the "manage fonts." 

However, I'd like to know how to scroll down the manage fonts section when there is no scroll bar available.

I think part of the problem is that these system fonts are appearing in the wrong section of the character menu. They should be down in the system fonts section, not the section of fonts I've actually used. Is there a way to manage the character menu? I see there's a "favorites" section which I was unaware of. Can I put the fonts I use most there, and then select from there only?

thats not what you said. you said:  "it is as available listed in the Adobe Fonts in Creative Cloud." and than you asked:" Is it automatically activated? ".  For Which i was showing you where you can check and how to deactivate it.

 

If its a system font you should leave it alone. can you show screenshots of what you see on the fonts menu?

Unfortunately it is a series of obscure fonts that Apple in its finite wisdom has put into the system, so it can't be deactivated.

 

I'm still curious about how to scan down the list of fonts in Creative Cloud when there's no visible scroll bar.
