Can I automatically replace missing fonts by other fonts in inDesign?


Question

I have an inDesign document in which certain fonts don't work (size equal to zero for PC fonts). Is there a way to have these fonts automatically replaced by other fonts of my choice? If so, can I also choose some settings such as letter-spacing and size in order for the new fonts to resemble the most the missing ones?

The simplest and most direct way to do this is by using Type > Find Font.... Highlight the font that doesn't work and choose the replacement. If appropriate, check the "Redefine Style When Changing All" box. Click Change All.

For a little more finesse, use the format tools in the Find/Change dialog. Don't type anything into the Find or Change to text fields. The format tools will allow you to specify very narrowly which font, point size, Character and/or Paragraph Style to target, with a similarly exact replacement.
