I've just started using the pdf conversion plug-in to convert from publisher 2007 to pdf. The way it was explained to me was that no matter what style of font you use it should be embedded in the file so that when someone opens the file they will read it in exactly the same style as I used to create it. I am a volunteer for a non-proft org. (my church) and each year we publish a small booklet and sell space to local businesses who contribute to the well-being of my church. This is the first year I'm using the pdf conversion but when I checked how the ad would look in adobe reader some of the fonts were changed and I can't seem to correct the problem. It doesn't happen with all the fonts which makes it even stranger. Anyone got any advice, suggestions, etc. Thanks.

Yes. That would be correct.
And it sounds like the fonts are not being embedded properly. To fix that, you would need to look at the settings in whatever application you are using to create the PDF.
Do you have Adobe Acrobat, another third party PDF utility or are you using the Publisher utility to create the PDF's?
Hi again. I have been using Microsoft publisher 2007 to create the pdf. I know after a little research that acrobat will convert without changing the style of font but quite frankly I have no desire to spend yet more money on another piece of software. I'm not a businessman but just do this work for my church as a hobby. We use a commercial printer to actually print the material but always ran into problems with his system changing the fonts because he did not have all the same fonts as me, hence the reason why I started just this year in converting to pdf. Thanks for your advice.
We have no idea "how" you are creating the PDF from those applications so can you give us the steps?
Better yet, you should probably head over to the Acrobat forum (assuming you are actually using Acrobat to create the PDF. All three of the applications you mentioned can create a PDF without using Acrobat at all) since this isn't a Reader issue but more of a PDF creation issue.
