Embedded fonts end up as jibberish...

Postby lcd » Thu Aug 01, 2013 4:16 am

When I check the 'embed fonts' option to make sure the commercial fonts I've downloaded display, they show up as jibberish instead of what's typed. For example, one heading was "sheep are the new cows" [don't ask... ] and on the PDF it came out as "T i f f r!bsf! u i f! o f y ! dpyt!". Not quite the same...

Any way to correct this, please and thanks?

Anyway you could send us a sample of the document that the problem occurs for and the name of the font it happens with (if the license allows sharing the font please send that too)? It's not necessary to be the sentence with the sheep, but since it sounds intriguing enough we'd like to read the rest too :D
