    I've been investigating an instance of this same issue for a couple of days, and just now found this thread. I am (along with other members of my department) experiencing the same thing others are reporting in this thread.

    InDesign preflight is falsely identifying some OpenType fonts as Type 1, but only when those fonts are in embedded vector drawings (.ai. .pdf, .eps). Using the same fonts natively in InDesign generates no preflight warning.

    In a test, I opened one of the Illustrator files that Preflight was identifying as containing Type 1 fonts. I changed one of the offending fonts in the drawing to a different OpenType font (not Type 1) and updated the file in InDesign. Then InDesign's preflight began identifying the new font as Type 1, but it's not.

    Converting all text in the illustration to outlines does cause the warning to disappear in InDesign preflight. But again, I feel that the warning is in error. And that introduces a level of complexity to our our workflow as we have hundreds (or thousands?) of illustrations with embedded fonts, used in hundreds of documents.
