Are you embedding the fonts in Distiller? As a minimum, you should embed MT Extra. Can't tell if there are any others, but whatever fonts are in your equations. You don't need to embed common fonts, like Times New Roman and Symbol.
It's important to know what versions of all software you're using -- ID, Acrobat, and MathType. Also, what OS?
I always embed all fonts.
The softwares I used...
ID CS6, Acrobat XI
MathType 6.7, Extensis Font Suitcase
In Windows 7 platform.
Yesterday I tried to export the PDF right from Indesign and it works almost well, but in some pages I found part of the equations were not printed/exported correctly in the PDF, I used High Quality Print in the Adobe PDF Preset.
And the error comes in random equations placed on the pages. Attached here a sample.
Thangaraj, would you mind sending me a sample by email? My email address is in my profile.
If you created this from scratch in ID6, the .indd file is all I'll need. If it started out as a Word document, send me both.
Thanks for your time Mr. MathType
I am ready to send the ID file with the links as a package, the text and equations were keyed in MS word and then flowed into ID, but I am not able to fetch the word file, only have ID and Equation Links.
I have checked your profile, cannot find your mail id, it shows "private", let me know your email ID to my personal mail "email@example.com".
Thanks in advance.
Mr. MathType, sorry for a long delay in my response, I am stuck with some works, any way I found a solution, the .WMF format equatoins is the problem. I have changed all equations into .eps format and now it looks okay. No text missing in equations.
Thangaraj, glad to hear you got the problem solved. You are correct; InDesign does not like the WMF equations. In fact, when you save the EPS files from MathType, do not use the format that's Encapsulated PostScript/WMF (*.eps). You will see the same problems. The best format to use with InDesign is Encapsulated PostScript/none (*.eps).
