Thank you for the report Piotr, but that is just a warning that can be ignored. If you would open the same PDF file with Adobe Reader (under Windows) no warning would be mentioned. doPDF does not currently embed fonts, and this is what kpdf is complaining about as it considers all used fonts should be embedded in the PDF.

In the future doPDF will embed fonts, but standard fonts as Arial, Courier or Times New Roman won't be embedded anyway since most computers have them (and embedding fonts increases the size of the PDF).
