Looks like whatever's awry still is. Ordinarily, files are processed in minutes but one I just uploaded for Security (using my usual settings), will be really, REALLY tardy, dangit...
Conversion Will Start In: 11 hours, 42 minutes and 22 seconds
Hooboy. And you've been waiting 24-plus hours, and you still see your original (also tardy) status message? YIKES.
Too bad there's no notice on the createpdf.adobe.com site yet.
It seems to be working again. I sure hope my customer likes what I did, I don't know that he's willing to be so patient if there are any changes to be made and it's still acting up.
Yep, my file completed processing, too. (Yay!) Ordinarily, all the steps take mere minutes, at least for my files (up to 3Mb or so). Speedy enough for uploading multiple tweaked versions to test assorted results. Speedy enough for me, and any impatient client:)
It's usually very quck for me as well - what is strange is that last month, nearly to the day, the same thing happened with the SAME customer! :) Talk about a twilight zone moment there.
What's the difference between the font file embeded in PDF file exported from InDesign and that is created by Acrobat? My font file decoder is able to handle the one from InDesign, but not the one from Acrobat 7.
What font file decoder? Are you using Create PDF Online?
I actually use Java's java.awt.font to create font of CIDFont
type2(TrueType) which is embeded in the PDF file. It seems that
type of English fonts are fine. But for the Chinese fonts, I met
the problem with the font files created by Acrobat 7 from a
Word's .doc file. No such problem ever happened with the PDF files
exported from InDesign. So, I guess there is some difference with
the font files generated by Acrobat and InDesign.
More details of the problem: There is no complain to create the
font. But the machine crashed when create the shape of glyphs.
I am puzzled...
Maybe the font has some copy protection.
Do you mean that Acrobat automatically protects the font when
it creates the PDF file from a .doc file?

Maybe. Adobe are very negative about any idea of extracting fonts from
PDF files, and have on occasion put license terms in their software to
prevent it. Why do you want to extract fonts? And why are you asking
in the "Create PDF Online" forum?
I simply thought some people here are PDF experts.
Is there any other place better for this topic?
Logically, whether to protect the font should be determined
by the authors.
More exploring shows that the CIDFont Type2 font file embeded
by Acrobat is much shorter than that embeded by InDesign. And
it doesn't meet the standard of true type font program.
>I simply thought some people here are PDF experts.
It is very important to pick a relevant forum. In this case, the
"Create Adobe PDF" forum is a very simple web tool for creating PDF
files, so the people who use it aren't likely to be expects.
>Is there any other place better for this topic?
You could try the PDF Specifications forum. You will probably need to
explain why you want to extract a font, which you didn't answer. In an
Adobe forum, people aren't likely to be warm about the idea...
