Embedding Opentype fonts
Posted on 2006-11-29
Our reprographics department have created some PDF files with a couple of embedded Opentype fonts using the save as PDF function of Macromedia Freehand MX (Mac version) However it seem that the fonts are not embedding correctly because they give an error when opened in Acrobat viewer or Acrobat 6:
Cannot extract the embedded font Myriad-Pro_Regular. Some characters may not display or print correctly.
With the Use local fonts option enabled one of the missing fonts displays, I don't have the other installed on my PC, with it disabled they are both substituted.
Should you be able to embed Opentype fonts? If so what is likely to be going wrong and how can I fix it or get round it?
