Hi all,

I'm using MemoQ 5.0.58 to translate IDML files. I can export them with no problems but when the client imports the IDML files back into In-Design, he gets a ‘Missing Fonts’ warning, something that did not appear in the source files.

Does anybody know how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Indeed it happens Feb 1, 2012

Indeed it has happened to us as well. I think it does not happen with all IDML files, but in at least one project we had that issue. However, I did not have the time to establish the conditions in which it happens and report it to Kilgray's support people. In that case we had, we were forced to save the file as an INX (using an older version of InDesign) and retranslate the whole file with memoQ.

We are working on another rather large IDML file today. If we experience the problem again, I will try to establish the causes and will report it here and to Kilgray.
