I use PageMaker (7.x, Win) several years. Unfortunately PM (at printing) can only read the first 256 char from OpenType char table (the Western code page), so the Central European chars used by me are missing at printing.
This is only the situation with modern multi-codepage OpenType fonts (like Windows system fonts), the old TrueType CE fonts (with only one 256-char code page) works fine.
Is there any way (program?) to export only the Central European char set/table from the multi-codepage OpenType font file into the old-style single-codepage TrueType font file?
Thanks for help
There used to be font re-mapping utilities, but they're hard to find as modern apps read all the charaters of an opentype.
The answer is to move to InDesign which has none of these shortcomings, and generally makes a fair job of converting PM files..
Otherwise it'sType1 fonts or similar with 256 characters.

You're fighting a losing battle. InDesign is definitely the answer to your problem.
