i get an missing font error when printing a placed pdf file from indesign
Posted on 2008-11-19
A client gave me an 100 page pdf file on A4 format (210x297mm) which has to be printed on A5 (210x148,5mm) and thermically "bound" in booklets.
Since i had to have extra space left and on the bottom off the page for the "binding process", i placed every single page off the PDF file into an indesign page.
Thanks to positioning the "place frame" this has all the necesarry space for the binding, and this automatically scales the A4 pages to A5 within the placed frame.
When printing the 100 pg indesign document i get an "missing font error" when i come in the print dialog box.
In Preflight, under fonts, all fonts show up "embedded" or "OK". When i open Type \ find font, all fonts used appear to be missing.
When opening the original PDF in Acrobat Professional, the document properties say under fonts "embedded subset " or nothing behind the used fonts.
I need to know that the pdf will be print exactly as the creator has intended because i need to do a lot of these booklets.
I have no time to manually check a 100 pages for missing or changed fonts.
any suggestions ?
