I have embedded the Adobe Caslon Pro Bold as both a plain font and an italic font through the insert-media-font option. However, when I use the font with the asteristic, the italic option doesn't seem to work. I also tried this with other fonts, and the italics never seems to work. What am I doing wrong?
I just checked, and there's definitely an issue with embedding the boldItalic version of the Adobe Caslon Pro font.
You can report the issue here:
I'd say it's doubtful it will get fixed though. It's a bit like the scene in Lost where all the completed lab books are found dumped in the middle of the jungle.
