Editing an opentype font?

Post by teapot » Fri Apr 10, 2009 11:17 pm

I've had to add some characters to Univers Lt Std 55, which is OpenType CFF, and comes in many variants. I only edited the Lt Std 55 one (regular, bold, italic and bold italic). When I save it, it gets saved as TrueType (or OpenType TT as MainType calls it). After removing the original versions and installing the new ones, Adobe Indesign can't see Univers Lt Std 55 anymore. It only sees the versions of Univers that I hadn't touched. In MainType it seems to work just fine.

Why does this happen, what can I do to fix this?

ps. I've tried changing the font's name and installing it like a completely new font. Indesign still won't see it. :( helppp
