Text with missing fonts do not always highlight
Even though "Highlight Substitute Fonts" is enabled in Preferences, text is not always highlighted when a font is missing. Expected behavior is for text with missing fonts to be highlighted in pink when this feature is enabled.
Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator Team really appreciate this.
We are able to reproduce this issue, investigating this further.
I have the same problem as Michael.
Preference>Type>Highlight Substituted Fonts (I have checked)
In my Illustrator files, missing fonts are NOT highlighted.
macOS Catalina, version 10.15.6
Illustrator, version 24.3.0

I wish I could be so lucky; my fonts are not only not pink, but completely disappearing.
The font for the address is apparently not activated and therefore not showing up as text AT ALL in the file. The Find Font window is also completely broken so I can't even find the missing font name to resolve it.
