We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I use Adobe Creative Cloud on an IMAC 21.5"/GT750M. Yesterday, I purchased Adobe Wood Type Std. Regular (Mac/Win, English). I installed this font by dragging it to the Font Book. The font is showing up on the font menu in Indesign, but most of the characters are showing up as black ovals or open rectangles with slashes. What have I done wrong? How can I get this font to work? Have I downloaded the wrong version for my computer/software?
Moving this discussion to the InDesign forum.
MondayTuesdayWednesday do you experience this same difficulty in other applications or is the font problem with InDesign CC only? Also which version of Mac OS are you using exactly?
The problem exists in Illustrator and Photoshop as well. Font does not even show on font menu in Microsoft Word. OS X 10.8.5

solution is they are available in the glyphs pallette
As mentioned above, they should be readily available in the glyphs palette in both InDesign and Illustrator (Photoshop does not have one). For other apps like Word, your download should have included both a Keyboard Layouts folder and a Readme folder with instructions on how to install and use them and an explanation of how Pi fonts currently work. If you did not receive those, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know and I will send them directly to you. I tested Word myself and the font does list, albeit somewhat illegibly because of all the bullets and ornaments when in sample mode; if you switch the menu to text only, you should find it easily in the 'A's, but it won't work easily in Word until the keyboard layouts are installed.
