When you open a document in QuarkXPress, the Missing Fonts dialog box will list missing fonts that are used in style sheets, whether the style sheets are applied to text or not. It will also list missing fonts that are used on Master Pages, usually with strange names like -37269, yet when you open the Usage window that font is not listed as being used.
To fix this, switch to your Master Page(s) and open the Usage window again. You’ll probably find the missing font there. Here’s the reason: QuarkXPress’s Usage feature doesn’t pay attention to Master Pages unless you’re viewing a Master Page.
