Don't forget formats that are not saved in the catalogs, these may
particularly occur in saved table formats, or as captions for objects on
the reference pages.  One of the most insidious and difficult to find
cases in an empty text line object (created via the "A" drawing tool on
the graphics palette), as these are essentially invisible. Try clicking
in the margin and "select all on page" (on the edit menu, or simply
control-a in Windows).

Also, if there are images in the document/template, they may contain
embedded fonts and trigger the error message.

If you really don't want these, be sure the preference to remember
missing fonts is off before you open  the file, open it and save, which
will let FrameMaker make its substitution (as seen in the FM console
window) for the unavailable font permanent.
