How do I disable or hide the pink background on missing fonts? I do not care that the fonts are missing. I do not want to install the fonts. I do not want to replace the fonts in the file; I want to keep the fonts the same even though I have opened the file on a computer that does not have these fonts installed.
Understand that you can not "Keep the fonts the same" unless you install the fonts on your system. The pink background is telling you that the fonts are not displaying correctly.
In any event, you can turn off the pink background by navigating to
Preferences > Type and unchecking the
Enable Missing Glyph Protection option or, if using Illustrator CC, the
Highlight Substituted Fonts option.
