    Cannot extract the embedded font 'F2'. Some characters may not display or print correctly.

      This question was previously published but no answer has been found.

      Error message is :
      "Cannot extract the embedded font 'F2'. Some characters may not display or print correctly."

      Many pdf documents display this error with Adobe Reader 8.1.0. We have errors for embedded fonts 'F0','F3','F7' and so on.

      It looks like a Adobe Reader bug because :
      - All PDF files can be opened with Acrobat Reader 5.0.5, 6.x and 7.x, can't be opened with 8.1.0 version.
      - the 8.1.1 update removes only the bug for 'F0' error message (issue #1572280).

      The solution :
      - to publish a 8.1.2 update to fix this important bug
      - is there a registry parameter or tool option to disable the checking added in 8.x version of Adobe Reader ? The 8.x version catches more errors to be compliant with Adobe specification but Adobe reader must be
      compliant with all documents generated by third party products.

      This Adobe Reader bug applies to Windows Vista, XP Pro SP2, 2000.

      Thx,
      Regards
