Some fonts are restricted and you cannot embed them the other partyneeds to have a copy of that font as well.
But itf you outlined the font then it is just a warning.
I would not worry about it
But when I try to import/place in InDesign,
it crashes... so the font was not embedded
You don't need an EPS file to place in ID; just use an AI file saved with PDF Compatibility or a file with Save A Copy as a PDF.
You did not write that in your original post what else is happening that might also be helpful to know.
I did not have any font issues before I upgraded to Snow Leopard in
I have looked in Font Book and the fonts are there... but some are
orange... never seen this before... why? Do I need to upgrade CS2 also?
