Type 1 font warning
The type 1 font warning pops up at inappropriate times. If you open docs with type 1 fonts and docs without type 1 fonts and then close the type 1 docs, the warning remains for the valid doc. Close the valid doc and reopen it to make the warning go away.
Found an OTF font misidentified as Type 1 font when exporting to Acrobat Pro. Not sure if it is a font issue of a program bug.

Similar issue here, though InDesign is failing to activate 'OpenType Type 1' fonts — which should be supported.
I am having the same issue. It is a colossal waste of time when I have to recheck evry single one of 64 style sheets that I know are correctly defined with open-type fonts
Same issue here!
See the attached screenshot. The selected font is marked as PostScript Type 1, while Info says that this font is OpenType.

ADOBE, this is a bug with how fonts are listed and flagged in the Fonts dialogue box.
Many fonts that are based on original Type 1 / PostScript data are now being flagged as Type 1 rather than OpenType.
Please refer to this post in the community forums, and to the screen capture in the origianl post: Although flagged as Type 1, the detailed information at the bottom of the dialogue is correctly verifying that the font is OpenType.
It's the warning in the dialogue that is incorrect.

OTF Postscript-flavour fonts still have a Type 1 font outline at heart. This is what is embedded in PDFs, but it is sourced from the OTF package. It's a bit confusing, yes. It would make more sense going forward if Acrobat identifies these as "Postscript outline" rather than "Type 1" but we're not there yet. (in addition, OTF TrueType flavour will read as TrueType in PDFs)
As for the warning, the code is a bit aggressive right now and identifies fonts hidden in an internal XML fork even if they are not used. No one is quite sure why, but the issue has been reported.
