Since InDesign has had it’s own Fonts folder, and OS X has used Helvetica Neue as a system font, using a specific version of Helv. Neue can be problematic, to say the least.
I’m creating a script that creates a series of templates, each of which requires specific fonts “ Helvetica Neue. On my testing system, if I have the fonts installed in InDesign’s Fonts folder before running, the script is fine.
If the fonts aren’t available the script ends, returning an error. Is there anyway I can get the script to ignore the fact that the font isn’t installed and make the template anyway? I’ve tried copying the fonts to InDesign’s Fonts folder in the script “ but thanks to OS X’s system, the name of the Helvetica Neue fonts that appears within InDesign can differ from system to system “ even if they’re the same font.
