Known Issues

  • On a Windows-based InDesign Server, FontLink will not process documents if the “input” folder is on a remote system, even if the remote folder is on a mapped drive. For simplicity’s sake, we recommend creating the input, output, and errors folder locally on the InDesign Server system (that is, on a drive physically attached to the server), then sharing the folders for users that need to access them.

  • The MySQL process may start after the boss process for FontLink Module and Connector on macOS. [UTS-2856]
  • When configuring an email server for use with FontLink through Google Chrome, the Universal Type Server may not be updated very quickly, so that a second browser might be able to add a second email server configuration. To avoid this, either do not run two sessions of the Server Administration application, or avoid using Google Chrome (at least when adding an email server). [UTS-2674]
