What does the Missing Fonts dialog mean?
If a font is missing, it may have not been added to Suitcase Fusion and thus can’t be automatically activated. Confirm that all of the necessary fonts have been added to Suitcase Fusion and open the document again.
If the font is missing from Suitcase Fusion 7, the plug-ins can auto-activate the “best” font for you to use if you check the box Pick the Best Match.
The best font will be used in the document and its information will be recorded in the Font Sense metadata for future use.
Note: If your documents contain Font Sense Metadata and all your libraries are selected, you should rarely encounter the missing fonts window.
If the issue persists or doesn't resolve, please get in touch with our Technical Support Team to further troubleshoot.
