Running Windows 7 with InDesign CC2015. Have run across instances where I'm trying to fully embed an editable font into a PDF for use in a web to print front end. The PDF profile has been setup to subset at 0% so the font should fully embed. On some fonts such as Calibri, the font will only embed subset the font with identity-H encoding. This PDF will not work properly in the web to print system. If I setup the exact same layout in Illustrator CC 2015, using the exact same PDF profile, the font is fully embedded in the PDF, and works perfectly in the system. Has anyone noticed this behavior in InDesign?
Many fonts must be subset, including (so far as I know) all OpenType fonts. Setting the threshold cannot stop this. If your web to print front end has this strange restriction, you will need to limit your choice of fonts.
Certainly, it would not be an InDesign bug, so long as the PDF displays correctly, which is its only criterion for success.
It is true that most fonts allow only to embed used fonts and don't allow editing. But generally, it is possible to create OTF where it would be allowed everything.
