I have tried every installation option - Mac OS 10.6. Does not display any symbols in FontBook or in InDesign...just black ovals.

I downloaded again from Adobe...did not work.

I want to ask Adobe to look at the download but there is no direct contact available.

OpenType fonts are not mapped to ASCII characters as the old Type 1 fonts are. In the case of a typeface like WoodType Ornaments, the symbolic characters do not map to your keyboard. You need to use the Glyphs Palette in InDesign in order to enter characters.

Try that and let us know if you are still having issues.
