Letters import as symbols

Jul 18, 2013 7:39 AM

When inserting a page into an existing document, some letters and numbers become symbols and make it unreadable.  Any ideas?

    If you have the fonts used in the document on your system, unembed the fonts using the PDF Optimizer and use the Print Production tool to re-embed all of the fonts. What you see happens frequently due to font subsetting. If the entire fonts is embedded into the doucment it won't happen.

    Ultimately you will want to embed the fonts if this is to be used by many folks. Not embedding the fonts leads to problems of many folks in reading a PDF.
