Vertically oriented fonts cannot be used in print (InDesign)

Scroll Prev Up Next More

This singleton run-time message occurs when generating a diary using InDesign, if an instruction is encountered to set the font of a given token replacement to a vertically oriented font whose name begins with the at character (@).


This message is a special case of message 185060 and is related to message 187375.


Fonts whose names begin with the at character (@) are the legacy vertically oriented fonts of early versions of Windows 32-bits, and these screen-only fonts should not be used for print with QuarkXPress or InDesign.


You should always use the version of the font whose name does not begin with the @ character.
