While working with InDesign CS2, we faced a strage problem, we copy some text portion and same paste anywhere in text area or pastboard, font gets changed, into [Times (TT)] font and in stylesheet it comes with "+" sign. But, in actual it was used some other font like "Times LT std". But in font status this font shows as a missing font. Please provide us solution to overcome this problem. It should be as it is as before paste command.

Re: Copy/paste concern: fonts getting changed
I think this sounds similar to a problem my friend had once.. & it was caused by the font missing or not recognised by Windows. I could be way off base here, but anyway, we found a CD with thousands of fonts on it & installed the missing font. After that, it appeared correctly. If you go to control panel (WinXP) and go to the FONT folder, is the font in there? If not, I beleive you might have to add it. If you still have problems, pls post them here. Pls also provide the operating system version and also identify the actual font thats missing.. That is, what does InDesign see the font type as? Rgds,

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
1.) Did you paste the fonts into a text box in Corel? Sometimes this works better than importing.
2.) try to copy all of the text from Word and then paste into a text box in Corel
3.)Make sure you answer yes to the "maintain fonts and formatting" question when pasting text into text box in Corel
4.) After pasting text, Save the Corel file!
Is this a legit copy of the software? You may need to do a full uninstall of CS2 and then try it again. Is it only a problem with indesign? It also sounds like a similar problem I've found with a Vista issue, is this on XP or Vista?
First, check for a stuck key such as the Caps Lock, Control, Alt, Shift, Tab, or Function key. Check the keys on both sides of your keyboard. Also check to see if you have a stuck button on your mouse.
If none of those fix the problem let me know - there are more things we can try.
This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents
InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv.
Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.
Have you searched for updates to InDesign? Have you looked at Adobe's Knowledge Base? I imagine that the typeface isn't supported by Adobe, but you may be able to get one that is, from Adobe: CLICK HERE.
