Subject:"Missing Fonts" message in FrameMaker From:rivka <rivka -at- ISTAR -dot- CA> Date:Sun, 10 May 1998 15:21:02 -0700
A colleagues and I are baffled and need some help. There is
nothing the archives about this.
In FrameMaker, (5 or 5.5 for Windows) how do you find the missing
font when you get either of these two messages:
"Missing the Franklin Gothic Book font from X book. Franklin
Gothic Roman will be used in this session.
"Document named XYZ uses unavailable fonts. To reformat the
document using available fonts click OK".
We can't find the Franklin Gothic Roman font anywhere in the book,
nor figure out what the "unavailable" fonts are. We're both pretty
sophisticated with FrameMaker, have looked in all the
documentation, but neither of us can figure out how to fix this.
We don't want to deliver the files to a customer with this message
Neither of us belongs to the FrameMaker List, and I'm not sure
where it is, so any help will be appreciated.
