I am updateing some posters for a client and am running into an odd problem. When I go to export the document to a pdf it tells me that there is a font that cannot be embedded due to license restrictions. The customer provided the entire file package including the font that is having issues. How do I work around this? I've installed the font and just need to export the file to a PDF so that my rip software( fiery) can rip it. I am also a little confused because although there is an error nothing looks like it is changing. Does anyone have any advice?
The font will have to be avilable to the RIP as well because the restriction is preventing it from being embedded into the PDF itself.
My rip software is loaded on my computer and also on it's own terminal. When I export the indd to a pdf I am doing it on the computer that has that font. What steps do I need to take to make a pdf with a licensed font?
Use a different font (without a restriction), or install a licensed copy on the machine that will do the RIPping. You cannot embed a font that is restricted against embedding.
But lack of emebdding doesn't make the PDF useless -- it just means the font needs to be installed wherever the PDF will be used.
