As a designer, you know the hassle of trying to work with a file that’s suffering from missing fonts—all the finesse of your project’s typography goes right out the window. This situation’s an even bigger headache if your project is in the hands of the printer getting ready to go to press. On press, time definitely equals money—pulling a job because of missing fonts also costs you time, aggravation, and perhaps missing your deadline.
The good news for creative professionals is that Monotype has introduced a workflow solution for missing fonts. Monotype Baseline is a cloud-based platform that offers access to a library of nearly 70,000 fonts via its licensed APIs. One such partner in this missing font solution is PDF and automation tools developer Enfocus, which adds fonts in the cloud support to their PitStop PDF Preflight software.
