Missing fonts (XD can't locate installed system fonts due to name mismatch)
0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 0.0.0.0
MacOS Sierra 10.12.5
I'm getting the missing fonts message when opening up files that contain references to certain MS Word-supplied fonts. Specifically, Adobe XD lists the following fonts show up as missing:
Fabric External MDL2 Assets-Regular
These fonts are available on my system under slightly different names:
Segoe MDL2 Assets Normal
Segoe UI Negreta
Segoe UI Normal
The file I'm trying to open is supplied by Microsoft: it's their design guide for the Office Fabric.js Layout system, available here: https://static2.sharepointonline.com/files/fabric/fabric-website/files/officeuifabric.zip (Source page:https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/fabric#/resources)
Fonts are supplied by Microsoft, available here: https://aka.ms/SegoeFonts (Source page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design-downloads/index )
Greeting Vlad and all:
Segoe font is used in XD Tutorial. If you ever worked with this file, you’d likely see this message.
I’ve found with reports as old as this one it’s best to retire and start fresh. If you’re seeing a problem in XD today the best thing to do is open new post with the following info:
- XD version
- OS version
- Detailed steps of what you’re trying to accomplish and where it’s not working as expected
- Screen grabs or video showing report

I have no Segoe fonts in my project, but it still shows the message that it's missing. Also it's included in my published specs.
Still have this issue.
I'm using the latest version of XD and Windows 10.
I'm having issues with fonts I'm installing through third party font management software. I'm using fontbase. I can usually deactivate/activate the fonts and they work but not today. I've restarted my system several times, closed XD and opened it again, nothing is working. This is beyond frustrating.
I keep receiving missing fonts error ALL the time on files I have produced myself with the fonts that is installed on same PC. They are installed and working fine with Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Word, PP etc. But XD keeps messing things up telling me that the fonts are missing. Every single time I open a document I'm forced to remove that blue error bar and click OK on the dialogue that pops up afterwards. It is hopeless. It applies to all documents no matter what font I'm using in the project. W10. It's a headache.
I am having a very similar issue with the same fonts, they work on some pages but then I load the next page and they don't work when live previewing on my iphone,
XD version 126.96.36.199. Mac.
Constant alerts for missing font: Roboto and Font Awesome. It recovers after restarting XD but in a few minutes the alert comes back. Please fix thank you!

Note also that it's possible to locate these fonts manually using Adobe XD's font picker, after which they display properly.
