installed font missing InDesign 17.2 macOS 12.3 (Monterey) and macOS Catalina
Different clients have the same problem. Installed fonts on the system are not recognised by InDesign 17.2. Other Adobe applications recognise the font and it can be used in those applications. I can recreate the problem, my colleague not. After downgrading InDesign to version 17.01 everything works fine.
We've just released InDesign 17.2.1 version which addresses this issue.
Please update to this latest version using Creative Cloud Desktop application.
In case the fix does not work immediately for you, please try the following:
1) Quit InDesign.
2) Delete the following:
Relaunch InDesign & see if it works properly now.

Seems a fix is under way with version 17.2.1:
InDesign 2022 (version 17.2.1)
Core feature and workflow
Unable to use some random fonts in InDesign.
Place gun is unloaded after first page of a multi-page PDF is placed in frame.
@Ayanna: version 17.2.1 is rolled out in a phased manner to different regions of the world.
I'm in Germany and hope that it will be available by the end of April 2022.

When will InDesign 17.2.1 be available?
I'm having the same issues and it is about affect our magazine production. The body copy font has stopped working for one of my artist. We can't just up and change the font.

I read that the issue should be fixed with InDesign v17.2.1 (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/fixed-issues.html). However if I test it over here, the issue still exists. Attached you'll find 2 screenshots. You can contact me!

Upgraded my old iMac last week to M1 Mac Mini and have been pulling my hair out about this dam issue. DINOT.ttf front activated and validated on system - works fine in Illustrator and Photoshop but nowhere to be seen in InDesign !
Wasted several hours looking for a fix, contacted Adobe in the end who informed me about the bug and that I should run an older version (17.0.3)
Adobe - Please fix - and whist you're at it can you also provide Bridge update ASAP :)
Paying top dollar for an app with quite a few issues! :(

Hello Adobe! While this error may not be obvious to a large portion of users, it is critical and vital to the trade of type designing and Typographers / Designers in general.
It was impossible for me to even begin to explain this to a customer in an understandable way. Not to mention the hours of research it took to find this error. Again - very critical!!
Please solve this - yesterday
Joining in the chorus. Last week I was working on a Silicon Mac Mini with no issues in ID 17.2 and 12.3 (Monterey) This morning I opened up the same files on my home 2021 Intel iMac (also with 12.3) and one font did not show up. Milo MT. My font managers all showed it activated but nothing would bring it back. Even multiple cache cleans, ID resets...etc.. Nothing.
Oddly, my old ID 2019 (left on my 2021 intel for older files) had no problem whatsoever recognizing the font. But I am NOT going to redo an entire issue going to press for one font.
As it is, now I am back to my "Travel" Silicon mac mini which DOES recognize Milo MT. It has a smaller screen, but as I'm on deadline tomorrow this is the only way I'll be able to make it. Not good Adobe.

While designing type I discovered that the character gravecomb caused this problem unless I removed the unicode. Jens Kutilek added that if ncaron is present in the font, it is not a problem.
Justin Penner commented
Please send this link to the dev team as it is probably related: https://forum.glyphsapp.com/t/indesign-v17-2-and-gravecomb/22131/19
I'm experiencing the same problem with fonts that contain gravecomb (U+0300) but not ncaron (U+0148). This is probably a very widespread issue since there would be likely thousands of fonts that are affected by this. I'm also running Catalina and InDesign 17.2
Also worth noting that the same fonts that do not appear in InDesign are working fine in Illustrator.
Hey Adobe, this critical error is open since end of March. Please hurry up - I guess in Ver. 17.0.1 are other problems you fixed in later versions, so it's not a good solution to downgrade.
I have the same issue as another user. It's with the Adobe font Enzo. Its activated in Adobe CC and shows up in Illustrator, but not in Indesign.

I have a google font called Outfit installed on my mac computer which was working with old version of InDesign. It;s now not working and I have tried everything to get it to work. It is working in Illustrator and other apps.

I have a google font called Outfit installed on my mac computer which was working with old version of InDesign. It;s now not working and I have tried everything to get it to work. It is working in Illustrator and other apps so is a weird bug in Indesign. Catalina OS. Please fix asap as i need to update client work and currently can't.
Alterantively - how to I downgrade to previous Indesign version?
PLEASE FIX THIS BUG! I have purchased fonts that work in everything from Word to Illustrator on my PC. InDesign 2022 is the only fail. Of course THIS IS CRITICAL - fonts are key to every design with a word on a page.
Anne Bergasse commented
I'm using Indesign 22 with Monterey upgrade and this font issue is happening and after 30 years as a graphic design professional with the last 5 years being so easy - this bug sucks royally!!! I've done all the fixes suggested and more and nothing works.
THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED BIG TIME!!!

Adobe, please resolve this issue ASAP. Our Corporate font no longer works with InDesign 17.2, it's really not pro.
It's bad enough that Adobe in its infinite greed is forcing us to jettison useful fonts, and negating the work of thousands but now the Open Type fonts don't work either. How will we know when this ridiculous problem has been repaired?
Darla Hussey commented
This is ridiculous. "Pay to have access to our fonts. It'll be great." "Oh wait, maybe only some of our fonts." and best yet, "Even though you pay to have this work, if not enough people vote that this is a problem, we're not going to fix it." Seriously?
BTW, rolling back to 17.1 does not fix. Rolling back to 17.0.1 does.
Same problem with F37 Moon, works with Illustrator, Premiere Pro etc.. But not with Indesign! Please fix soon!
