Lea,

The only font *visible* is Arial, but FM may have other font names saved 
in the file on reference pages or in table tag definitions.  The fact 
that the message is intermittent suggests that between sessions your 
default printer has changed (perhaps from a physical printer to AdobePDF 
or vice versa).  When a physical printer is the default, it reports its 
resident fonts to the OS, which then falsely informs applications that 
those fonts are actually installed on the PC.  When the default printer 
changes, poof -- those fonts are gone.

The SetPrint plug-in from
http://www.sundorne.com/FrameMaker/Freeware/setPrint.htm
eliminates that problem.
