Fonts not activating, not available (Windows 11)

Using Fontbase for first time. I downloaded it and am considering a subscription – because I need to clean out my installed fonts and restore some order. But I have a folder of TT/OT fonts that are meant to replace Adobe Type 1 fonts that are no longer supported by Adobe. I opened those fonts with Fontbase. It says they are open. But they are NOT available in InDesign to replace several Type 1 fonts. WTH? I’m on a deadline.

Have you activated the font by clicking on the circle in front of the font name and seen it go green lit?

If it is green lit & active, try closing and reopening InDesign.

I don’t work with that program so I’m not sure if the above doesn’t work, what else might be the issue.
