I’ve added pages to a document I’m working on and the font isn’t the one I have chosen. I’ve done everything I know to try and change the font but it won’t change. I don’t even know what the font is. The text is very thick and has a red background. The font I have chosen is Helvetica LT Std, 10pt. I didn’t change my font and the master page the new page is based on is the same master page used throughout the document. What can I do?
Check to see if there is a character style applied to it. I think a while back I read about someone copying and pasting from a Word file and an unknown character style came through and was applied. The type was dark red and the font all convoluted.
As Cat said–if it’s just a pink color, it’s a missing font. But from your description, it sounds like some character style was applied.
I thought it may be a character style as well; however, there are no character styles on the master page nor the page I’ve added. I’ve deleted the new page and added a new one, same result. I’m stymied.
Definitely, the pink of missing fonts. I found the missing Helvetica tenacious and not wanting to be changed in Find Font, but that may be because the only Helveticas I have installed are the Mac OS dfonts. But, when I changed the missing fonts to another font (Minion), I could then change them again to a Helvetica.
