SVG Font Designation Not Shown in Find Font
If a font is an SVG font, InDesign shows the square box "SVG" designation in the font dropdown. However, if you view the font info under Find Font (Type>Find Font), the font type does not show as SVG. There is no way to determine if an SVG font was used in the file other than to view in the font dropdown. That is a problem as SVG fonts are not supported in PDF yet and will not be caught by preflight. Can the SVG designation be added to the Find Font info screen?
We are looking into the concern. Thanks for reporting.

yeah, someone decided to create a "color" font that one could fill with black and it still appears in color, but it's black, and didn't think that might present a problem for some workflows...

yes, we could use more ways to identify SVG fonts.
