    Can I prevent Reader from printing CID fonts? (Identity-H encoding)

    marterland

      When printing from Adobe Reader to a Virtual Printer, the resulting pdf sometimes contains CID fonts, even though the original document does not (original pdf encoding: Ansi).

       

      The document properties of the resulting pdf look like this:

       

      Type: TrueType(CID)

      Encoding: Identity-H

       

       

      Not all PDF Readers have this behavior. Can I prevent this from happening somehow?

       

      (I need to extract text programatically from the resulting PDF, but I cannot do that with CID fonts. )

       

      Thanks!
