Font book "serious errors do not use font"

Postby jgold723 » 18 Aug 2016, 07:54

This isn't a Quark-specific problem, but I suspect others may have run into it so I'll post.

I'm working a QX9.5 project (Mac) from a client. They have supplied fonts via the collect for output process.

I'm attempting to install the fonts in my machine (Yosemite). Font Book has flagged approximately half the fonts with "serious errors" and the recommendation not to use.

I have asked the client for replacements, but if he can't supply them, I'm wondering what my options are. Are these errors really "serious"? Are there ways to fix the fonts?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If there are truly errors in the font, the only (proper) way to fix them is using a font editor. I would load them anyway, start a new document, then fill some frames with placeholder text and set it. Then Export to PDF and carefully check the output.
