Copy/paste concern: fonts getting changed

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.

    I use windows xp and PC version InDesign CS2. My problem is, when we simply copy any text portion and pasting it should come in same font, but it gets changed into [Times (TT)] font and in stylesheet also it comes with '+' sign. After that we again select that portion and apply original font, then it comes correct. We never use this font as it looks true type font.I checked preferece setting also but not getting any clue. Please give me clue on that.

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,

    Why the Inappropriate solution? That makes me look really bad. It's kinda odd really, when we spend so much time trying to help people like you & you rate before we have had a chance to even get seriously involved in sorting out your problem. Very sad really. Goodbye.

How do I change font when copying something from a web page?


Hi Glenda. The best way to resolve this problem is to copy the text (presumably you did this) then Paste it into a word processor, like say Microsoft Word, or if you do not have a full Office Suite, download and install the free Libre Office (excellent!) via this link: http://download.cnet.com/LibreOffice/3000-18483_4-75337651.html then use its word processor (note that during the installation you are asked if you want Libre Office to work exactly as though Microsoft Office so opt for that - it's still all free) then you can Paste what you copied into a new page and once that is done, you can re-select the text in the document and change it to any font, any size, any colour etc as you wish. If you don't know how to copy text from a web page, put your mouse pointer at the start of the text you want to copy, it will change to a cursor (like a letter I) then hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse down until all the text you want to copy is highlighted (could be white lettering on red or blue - depends on your computer setup). Then whilst it is highlighted, hold down the CTRL key and whilst that is down, press the C key (= CTRL+C). The text is now copied to your Windows Clipboard- it only stays there until next copy is made or computer turned off. To Paste into the word processor document left click inside the document and then use CTRL+V to Paste in the text. By repeating the selection process you can then change the font as mentioned using the facilities in the programme. That way you can change the font, colour, layout and so forth and of course, Save to keep for future reference.

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

Text in excel textbox turns to gibberish


It may be a font issue... did you change the font of the typed-in text to a non-True Type face? For every typeface there are two fonts: a screen font to display on your monitor and a printer font for printing,

If somehow there is confusion or corruption in the Excel file contents about exactly which font is specified at a given point in the text box (e.g.if you type like I do with lots of backspaces, which are actually special codes that can cause such corruption), then the misfire between screen and print fonts can cause the text data to be corrupt. It seems to be an operating system issue (did you make a lot of changes to fonts on your system?) or something wrong with your personal installation of Office 2003 in any case, because Excel 2003 is a very stable release. To fix this I would try examining the Windows\Fonts folder using a third-party tool or comparing its contents to a known-good Windows installation (or simply copy and paste your typed paragraphs into Notepad and re-paste it into a new text box in a New Document (starting fresh with a new Excel worksheet could solve it all by itself).

Copy and paste not functioning


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.

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


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.
