I've got a problem which I couldn't google. I've got so little information and knowledge on this topic, that coming up with the right search terms didn't work. Plus... I guess my Problem is rather rare.
We have a corporate font, which comes in more than one flavor. Due to a new corporate design, I am trying to create Indesign styles, so that everyone in our organiztation can use them and the same job doesn't have to be done serveral times.(and again on changes and updates)Problem
The font in Question is the Rotis. Which many of us have as "Agfa Rotis". There is also the "Rotis", which is practical the same and its vanilla-flavor is named - depending wher you buy it - Std. or Regular. Agfa Rotis comes in many single files. Each weight as a single font which then identifies as "regular".
So creating ONE style library is easier said then done. Buying a font already owned, just because its name is inconvinient at some points, is not an option. We are financed by our members. But I still would like to solve this Possible Solution
Can I "repack" the Fonts? Taking them an make sure, that one of the three font variants you can buy is used as "the right way" and I create "edited" Font files of the other two, where the only change is, that in Indesign & Co. they show up in the same hierarchical structure as the "right one"?
This way, everbody just would need to install the repacked version of the fonts they licensed and we could all use the same style libraries and templates?
Am I crazy?
I would appreciate any commment on this.
Thanks in advance.
