Re: Michanek's procedures to locate missing fonts

Thanks, Jim & Lester, for chiming in.

My response follows below.

Jim, I searched Reference, Master, and Body
pages.  But I found the problem.  I should have
made sure to remember missing fonts rather than
making sure to not remember missing fonts.  Some
brain cells short-circuited and I thought FM
would not remember the font substitutions if I
told it to not remember missing fonts.  I can
search for Symbol Bolded and find instances of
that font, though it still doesn't show up in
the list of references for fonts, nor in the MIF

Funny how the offending font shows up as "Symbol
Bolded" in windows, and "Symbol Bold" in Unix.
In neither system does Bolded show up as a weight.
Not that it matters at this point.

Lester, the Find/Change utility found the offending
fonts even though the text was a text line within
an anchored frame.  FYI.

Thank you both again.
