I am copying and pasting from Powerpoint into an InDesign document and the Chinese fonts, which normally work fine, show up as boxes. I am selecting several different Chinese font types (i.e. SimHei and Heiti SC), but all show boxes where characters should exist. Thanks, in advance for your assistance.

Could it be that those fonts aren’t proper unicode fonts?

Michael,

   It is possible, but why would they have worked before and just now stopped working. I have tried fonts that I downloaded, as well as, fonts that are Unicode and native to Adobe. I get the same thing, boxes with pink around them. I have to meet a deadline and have no idea how to rectify this issue. Thanks for your response.

Did you use these font within the Powerpoint file? It is not sufficient to have them on your system.

Michael,

  I am embarrassed to say that I was trying to make Korean work for a Chinese font. Yes, I am an idiot. I rarely, but sometimes get going too fast and fail to pay attention to which country the customer request originated. In this case it was Korea and upon placing the Korean font style it worked fine. Thanks you for addressing my issue and taking the time to help me.
