Hi,
With the window "Find and replace font" I can easily replace all individual fonts in a document. But this is only possible with permanently installed fonts. How can I include the "cloud" in the search?
The point is that we still use a lot of T1 fonts in our files and of course we only want to buy new fonts that are not included in the Adobe abo-subscription.
In addition, everything should be done as quickly and efficiently as possible with 1-2 clicks, without having to mark individual lines of text.
Does it work somehow?

Thanks in advance
Patrik

Hi, in order to use fonts in indesign it needs to be activated (adobe fonts) or on your system. (ie to use the find change)

Thx a lot.
If I have now installed both the old T1 font and the cloud font for a transitional period, how can I identify the correct font sources in the "Search and replace" window? There are no symbols ...

Hi,

dont use find change (although there is a way to do this), use find/replace font. That should help you easier.

Hi Grant H,

open the Find/Replace Font… dialog, select a font and look into the font's Information by opening "More…".
