Using the Missing Fonts Loader Plug-in
This plug-in has an activation option: automatic (recommended) or manual.
If any fonts in a document are missing, Adobe InDesign displays a warning window.
The Missing Fonts Loader Plug-in loads missing fonts automatically when you open an Adobe InDesign document.
The plug-in searches for fonts in FontExpert font Library. If a missing font is not found in the FontExpert Library view, it will not be activated, and the font will be marked by InDesign as a missing font (for the current document).
Sometimes, when InDesign opens the document, it may still mark fonts as missing, even though they were actually activated by the plug-in during the opening of the document. In this case, you may be required to reopen document to let InDesign know that all missing fonts are now activated.
When the Activate Missing Fonts Automatically checkbox is cleared, the plug-in does not activate missing fonts when you open the document. You can open the plug-in window and activate fonts manually.
The Missing Fonts Loader window shows the list of missing fonts in current document:
Click the Activate All button to activate missing fonts.
When missing fonts are activated manually, it may take some time for InDesign to recognize new fonts and to redraw the document. Sometimes you need to close document and open it again.
Active Fonts in FontExpert
Plug-in will be able to activate Aria and Kanon fonts if they are in Library. Optionally, if Aria and Kanon fonts are also in Groups, the corresponding groups will be marked as having active fonts.
