- How can we know that a font is missing?
I ask because after a hardrive crash and a complete system reinstall I used Dorico without having installed all my user fonts.
For example I use a Garamond font for “default text” in Dorico and this is the parent for most of my custom Paragraph Styles.
As I opened a project I noticed that Garamond had been replaced with Academico.
Dorico did not give any alert that the Garamond font wass missing.
In this case I could easily noticed that the font was missing because as I use it for almost everything it was quite visible.
But I can imagine that at some point, depending on how many custom fonts one uses, it may be difficult to know that a font is missing.
Even now I am not 100% sure if I maybe used a custom font for small things!
After I installed the missing font the project loaded the font correctly.
It means then that Dorico indeed knows and remembers about which font should be used but there is no alert when the font is missing.
- Could a “Missing font alert” be added?
