Every time I open a certain file, I get a missing font message, despite the fact that my annotation styles have been repeatedly cleaned and purged and this font is not referenced by any of them… or so I thought.
I sent in a largish file to tech with this problem. I already spent a number of hours trying to track it down, writing some diagnostic scripts and individually going through the 200+ texts in the file to see which ones might be causing this.
I actually found a few texts that had an annotation style that uses Arial, but the individual text referenced a different, non-installed font (Helvetica Light), so I went in and fixed them all, one by one by re-assigning Arial to the individual text objects. Saved the file with that nice feeling that comes from thinking I had finally vanquished the problem. Yeah, right.
Re-opened the file and got the missing font message…
So now I finally am able to repeat the bug. Below is a file with one of these objects. Open it and select the text, in Properties you will see that the annotation style is Standard 02 (font: Arial), but the text actually references Helvetica Light (not installed)
OK, attempt to fix by changing the font to Arial via the dropdown:
Cool, it seems to have worked. Yeah, right.
Unselect the text. Reselect the text. In Properties it shows Arial for half a second, then reverts to Helvetica Light (not installed).
