Chapter 13. Typical FrameMaker Headaches > Working with Missing Fonts

Working with Missing Fonts

The Missing Fonts error is perhaps one of the most-common problems users experience in FrameMaker. Missing font errors occur when your computer doesn’t have the exact font that is used or referenced in the document file. With FrameMaker available on a variety of hardware and software platforms (where the same fonts have names with slight differences), different font configurations for individual computers and multiple users working on document files, it’s no wonder that the Missing Fonts error continues to pop up onscreen.

If you are working in a book file, this error can mean trouble. Usually, you don’t have to open individual files included in a book in order to update/generate the book file. However, if individual files contain missing fonts (for any reason), the book’s update/generate will stop. You must solve the font problem before you attempt to update the book file. A quick fix for this is to open the individual files causing the problem first, and then update the book file. By opening the files first and dismissing the Missing Fonts error message, you can successfully update the book file while those files stay open.
