    I just shared this in another thread before finding out about THIS wonderful thread.

    I have realized that InDesign doesn't tell the truth (not right now anyway). InDesign will TELL YOU that the font is missing AND it may even render the enter font in a different language BUT, in reality, the fonts are still there and if you export out as a PDF they will export out accurately. Initially, seeing your entire document render in an alternative language is alarming to say the least but when I realized InDesign likes to play these games, I've learned to ignore it. I'll export out, close out, shut down and then re-start the program. Doing this is a pain in the asset and a huge waste of time so, I am hoping that Adobe finds a solution because as a pro corporate designer, time is of the essence. But now I know, you can't always believe what InDesign is showing you.

    Another person posted in another thread that when she removed the fonts folder from the packaged folder, her font issues were resolved. PLEASE NOTE ... I have NOT YET tried this as a solution.

    Another professional recommended using a professional font manager ( other than Font Book ) but many people commented that doing so DID NOT resolve the issue.

    I have tried the solution that Jennings posted below but that only works temporarily. The next time I opened the file, I would experience the same issues I had previously.

    Cheers! to Adobe + Apple finding a way to play well together in the sand box (again)!
