The font may not have been used in the document's text. Typically, when the font is 'not found', it only exists in unused catalog definitions. You can do two things: - switch off the 'remember missing font names' option, then open the document - save the document as MIF. Sometimes the Save action gets rid of the message, sometimes you need to go through the MIF using a text editor, and replace the font name everywhere. Harro de Jong
