We run a community magazine produced on Indesign and have just upgraded to CC from CS6. As this is a 48 page magazine with 20 pages of adverts I need to be able to use December 2018 as a template for the 2019 issues. However, when I open the document, Indesign says there are 51 missing fonts. The process of altering and checking each font will be very onerous - is there a way of migrating the fonts to CC in a batch? I have also just upgraded to IOS Mojave - which was the spur to upgrade to Indesign CC. The copy deadline is fairly close so any help to shortcut this task would be appreciated.
Upgrading from the CS6 to any of the CC versions of InDesign should not have any affect on your fonts, assuming that you had your fonts properly installed on your MacOS (not iOS) system.
Perhaps you were using fonts that were located in InDesign's or the CS6 private font directory (not a recommended procedure)? Or perhaps you were also migrating from one computer to a new computer at the same time as updating your software? In either of those cases, you would need to retrieve backups from before your upgrade to CC, find the fonts in either the system font directories of the CS6 private font directory in your backup and copy them to your new system's font directory.
