Hello,

 

When I open an .iba file allways receive Document warning:

     - The font "Baskerwille-SemiBold" was substituted for the missing font "Baskerwille".

If clear this message and reopen the book, the same message brings up again.

 

I didn't use Baskerwille font at all. I can't find where it is used in the book. Please help how can I ignore this warning.

    Hi Zoltan

     

    Yep, this is annoying – iBA seems to have no method for searching and replacing fonts. Not sure there's a workaround. My advice would be to report it as a feature request here:

     

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/ibooks-author.html

     

    ...and cross your fingers and wait.

     

    Sorry I couln't be more help...

    Thank you, I will send a request.

    I hope I can publish the book to the iBookStore with this Document Warning.

    I can't give a conclusive answer on that I'm afraid - so far I've only been in the production side of the process, the publishing section is dealt with by our clients.

     

    I'll email them and see if there was anything that occurred when trying to publish, and I'll post back here if I get a useful response.

    Thank you for phone numbers. I'm in Hungary so there is no online/phone support for us yet.

     

    Tried to check the book with iTunesProducer but it was unable to repair the EPUB.

     

    BTW I have deleted everything (text, images, layout) from the book and I made the sample.iba.

    If I open this "empty" file I receive still the

    iBooks Author Document warning: The font "Baskerwille-SemiBold" was substituted for the missing font Baskerwille".

    I open the iba file without getting that error. It even passed the pre-publish check when I start the process to publish it. The problem might be with the fonts installed on your computer.

    Thank you! Yes, if I take on the Baskerville font (regular) with Font Book, then there is no warning.

    If I take it off, the Document warning is showed again. So Baskerwille font is in the book somewhere, but I can't localize where it is. I didn't want to use this font, and the warning still exist even if I delete all text, image, graphics from the book.
