Font Substitution when printing pdf files
We print client-supplied pdf files, and have problems with missing fonts.
The clients are not very knowledgeable nor particular, and they do not
always embed their fonts. When they view or print them (using File:Print),
Acrobat substitutes the default Acrobat Serif or Sans Serif font. Clients
either can't tell the difference, or don't care.
However, when we send these files on our genuine Adobe PS3 production
printers, the jobs fail with a "font not found" message. Our site policy, as
is the general practice, is to fail jobs when the required font is not
...Creating PDF Files with embedded (substituted) fonts...
Given: PDF files with several non-included fonts.
The PDFs are displayed and printed correctly, because the missing fonts
are temporarely substituted.
Problem: Distilling the PDFs with Option "embed all fonts" does not
work, because I have not all fonts installed on my computer
Wanted: A tool that permanently substitutes the missing fonts to its
best effort and then creates a PDF with all fonts embedded
Who knows how to achieve this? I have a Windows and a Linux computer. I
would prefer a free solution, but could also pay a moderate price for a
...Font substitution problem while generating pdf file
I am writing a grant proposal with some rather strict font requirements:
* Only size 12 sans serif fonts should be used throuhout the document.
* The Characters Per Inch (CPI) should not exceed 15.
I can generate a postscript file that satisfies these requirements by using
the following code in the document:
However when I tried generating the pdf file, the main document font is
substituted and the new font is a tiny bit smaller than cmss, and gives a
CPI of 16, which will result in the grant proposal being administra...pdf::writer
Sorry to ask here, I could not figure it out from Google chasing.

...How to convert this ps file to a pdf file w/ searchable text? (pkfix-helper: No Type 3 fonts were encountered in the input file)
I try to use pkfix-helper to fix the pdf and then run ps2pdf on it.
But I get the following error. Could you please let me know if there
is any other way to generate a searchable pdf file?

Dear perl-ists: I tried out PDF::Create 0.01 (from cpan), and it is
great. kudos, fabian. creates wonderful, clean, small valid pdf
output. my only complaint is that its numbering system. on cpan, it
seems to be 0.01 ever since 1999? ;-)
alas, my need is slightly more complex. I need to underlay an already
existing pdf file that was created by pdftex with a page that I can now
create with PDF::Create (or some other program). that is, the latter
should become the background ("watermark") for the former. to
re-pdftex the former would simply take too long, so a personalized
...Replacing Type 3 fonts with Type 1 fonts in PDF files
I have some documents that were produced with (La)TeX quite some time
ago. Unfortunately, some of them use the Computer Modern fonts in low
resolution (say, embedded with 300dpi) and, to make matters worse, some
of the documents I have have already been converted from PS to PDF with
the use of ps2pdf (which calls ghostscript as an auxiliary program).
I do know that Heiko has a program called pkfix (which is a Perl
script) to operate on PS files for substitution of the bitmapped fonts
with scalable fonts, but it unfortunately doesn't work for documents
created with some early...adobe professional extract character set fonts from pdf to edit pdf file
Having spent $400 on Adobe 'professional' edition, I cannot edit a
simple PDF document without purchasing a whole lot of type from the
adobe store that could easily cost $1,000.
There must be some catch here!
How is it that I can purchase Adobe Photoshop and not have to buy
additional Pantone colours (because they are all included in the
program) and yet I am forced to buy fonts in order to edit pdf
The Adobe 'Profesional' program is sold on the basis that I can use it
to edit pdf documents, but Adobe conceals the fact that before I can
use the program for editing...Embedded fonts in PDF files
is there a tool to either
* extract embedded fonts from PDF files and install them, or
* vectorize a text from a PDF file, written there in a font not
installed on the system?
I need this for the inscription of a model railway car; I have the
original inscription as a PDF with an embedded font which I don't have
on my system so I can't use it in Adobe Illustrator or similar software.
Thank you and best greetings
