Ligatures hell


Hi all,

First of all, hello to all!
This is the first time i post, although i have been reading
this forum a lot, with great enthusiasm!

But let's get down to business.
I have been working on a sans serif font in fontlab.
Everything works fine, kerning, ligatures.


When i want to use my font, on a existing text in indesign, the ligatures don't work.
But, if i create a new text block, end select my font, and start writing, the ligatures do work.

The problem is, that i want to use the font for a new book i'm designing.
It has a lot of text, which i can't just rewrite.

I have tried the trick of copy, pasting (same font, or first changing it into another), also in a new document,
but same problem keeps on appearing.
