Hi, I do most of my work in Indesign CS3 ME version and am now facing with this problem when I convert my file to PDF: Truetype fonts like Baghdad, Deco Naskh, Geeza Pro will appear jumbled up (blank spaces in between text), replaced with boxes, or disappear totally. I tried to subset fonts at 100% and 0% to no avail. I use the Mac OS 10.5.8. I tried opening the files in Indesign CS4, and exporting from that, but the problem persists. I am not familiar with the workings or Acrobat, so I don't know how to apply the TouchUp text tool.
Your help is much appreciated. Thanks.
try using this time honored and useful workaround--convert text to outlines--export PDF--then close Indesign file without saving so the text will revert to editable text).
Export to PDFX-4.
