I'm having trouble sending my files to the printers, my fonts is jumping...
How do i make sure that my fonts are embedded into my PDF file,
I'm using indesign cs5.5 Please can someone help me, I have distiller as well.
Thanks for the reply to my question.
When i send my saved PDF file to the printer via Email they always phone me and say that my fonts are showing blocks and unreadable text.
Except in the case where font embedding is not allowed by the font creators. In that case you should get in contact with the font creator and get a license that does allow embedding, if one exists.
Can you check one of your problematic PDFs with Acrobat? Go to the Document Properties dialog and check the "Fonts" tab. That way you can verify if your fonts are embedded.
It's really straightforward: where Acrobat does *not* tell you a font is "(Embedded)" or "(Embedded subset)", that font is missing.
If you find you are creating files without embedding all fonts, you need to review your workflow. As I said above, you might have switched off InDesign's warnings for this.
Bear in mind it's also possible your PDFs are fine and it's your printer that needs to update.
Thank You so much i'm designing adverts for an magazine NN Trader you can check it on Facebook, But when I send my magazine Exported PDF file to my printer they are having font problems, so maybe like you said they should upgrade their printer software.
I just need this problem to be sorted out as why its costing me time that i don't have.
Thank yo again
