    I need CMYK for printion.

    But font error occurs when publishing PDF to CMYK mode.

    Bold and Italic does not apply in korean font(gulim.ttc, batang.ttc).

    Most Korean font does not have bold.

    Tell us more about the font error – I'm not sure it would be related to the colour mode (CMYK).

    ".ttc" format fonts are a collection of TrueType fonts within a single file and the bold & italic members are probably within that file. Depending upon your operating system, locale setting and FrameMaker version, you may not have access to these sub-fonts within the collection.


    There also were issues with FM prior to the 10.0.2 patch version using the CMYK mode not properly supporting a variety of font types. I suspect TTC might also be one of these.


    More details on your operating system and FM version number might help ***** what your actual probelm might be.

    Well I never – a colour mode screwing a font definition! FM errors are nothing if not imaginative

         b. CMYK mode

    I select color mode in the "PDF Setup" When i create pdf.

    For some reason, CMYK mode was not bold and italic.

    In the pdf, font property have different expression.


    I don't know what went wrong.

    This might still be a problem with the CMYK mode in the SaveAsPDF option. The fixes in 10.0.2 addressed many known issues with TT-WGL and OpenType Pro fonts, but I don't think that TTC formats were ever properly tested. If you can get TTF versions (you'll end up with more discrete fonts), try using those as a workaround.


    Alternaively, try using the RGB mode to see if the fonts render coorrectly. If they do, then you can use Grafikhuset's PubliPDF tool to correct the RGB to CMYK for print production. See: ubli-pdf for the freebie version download (it's freely available under an open source GPL v2 license now).
