All the fonts are in the Classic fonts folder, and this is referenced in Distiller. Distiller is 'seeing' the font ok, it's just something about the font that is causing it to crash. Monotype tech support have accepted this and are looking into it. (Linotype is now owned by Monotype). I appreciate that the same font is often available from different suppliers, and that this can sometimes cause problems, It certainly has caused me problems in the past, in my case with multiple but incompatible versions of Frutiger. However, in the case the font and foundry are specified by the publisher. -- Steve
