Font problems between two computers. . .

L Welch's picture

Working with ID CS3.0.1 -- job made up on one computer, move to another for final touches and printing -(both PC's...) the Times Roman font is not found, first computer a year or so older, font file looks identical... Older computer Has Times roman PS MT, newer just Times Roman. Havn't noticed another font doing anything like this. Can I ever get them to agree on Times Roman? And how>..? Million Thanks...

can you embed the fonts in the file on the first PC? Or install the Times Roman version you want on the second PC?

From what I see, the fonts are identical, everything I can find is exactly the same, size of file, name, file dates, attributes... why should I have to do this, with same OS, same ID version, same everything... we're just getting ID going (from Pagemaker...) and this is a set-back!
When you embed, (would have to learn how to...) can you make changes etc. without the hassle of the font name difference?

Times New Roman PS MT is Monotype's version of TNR... The other one isn't -- i.e., it's from another manufacturer. I agree with Russell that you should just install both versions of the font on each of your PCs.

I'd like to add to the suggestion made. Yes, put the other Times Roman on the other computer - but the addition is please remove the Times Roman that is residing there. You don't need any conflicts within the Times Roman family.

P.S. I'm on a MAC - and I have to live with a .Times Roman dfont in my system. I always kept my "families" of fonts in one suitcase, but thank's the the new system, can't do that. I must now how individual suitcases, and remove the conflicts. And FYI - there have been tons of conflicts with the Times New Roman!
