That is definitely not normal. Fonts that are embedded and subsetted shouldn't show that result.
You'll have to tell us a great deal more about your project for us to help you. Version of InDesign? Operating system? Did you export as File > Export > Adobe (Print) or Adobe (Interactive)? What PDF setting did you use?
But there could be something wrong with the file or your InDesign preferences. Try saving the InDesign file as an IDML (File > Save As > InDesign CS4 or Later (IDML) and reopen in InDesign and try exporting again.
Thank you for the quick acknowledgement.
I've tried your IDML suggestion but sadly there was no difference.
Export > Adobe (Interactive)

Is there anything else I can tell you?
I have uploaded a sample of my file earlier. Are you able to see it?
Your help is appreciated.
I've never seen that problem so I'm just fishing here for an answer.
Let's see if some of the other PDF experts have an idea.
If you ope the PDF with Acrobat, go to File/Properties/Fonts, what do you see in the list?
Hi Danny, thanks for taking a look.
Verdana (embedded Subset)
Verdana (Embedded Subset)
Type: TrueType (CID)
I have tried alternative fonts such as Arial and Calibri, but I'm getting similar big font file sizes in the 'Audit space usage'.
Have you had any more luck with this at all?
As I mentioned to Steve, I had uploaded a sample file earlier in the day, if that would help identify anything.
Uploaded where? You need to give us a link to it.
I used the 'upload a file' feature of this site (I'm not sure how to supply you a link for it).
If this isn't correct please can you let me know how you wish for me to upload it.
There is no facility on the forum for ordinary users to upload a file. You would need to host it someplace like dropbox or a file-sharing service, then provide a link to that here.
I see the numbers, but can't explain why the fonts should take up so much space. You might want to ask this in the Acrobat forum.
