In the meantime however, to try and resolve your problem change the 
<optimize-resources>false</optimize-resources> underneath the 
application/postscript renderer section in the fop.xconf to true. That should 
strip out any unused fonts listed in the config file from the output.
I'll investigate more tomorrow if you're still having issues.

Subject: Distiller errors with postscript generated by FOP
To: fop-users@xmlgraphics.apache.org

Hi all,
A belated thanks for the response to my previous question about using Adobe 
Distiller with postscript output from Apache FOP.  
I am hitting a new issue, in which Adobe Distiller gives me an error when I 
give it a .ps file generated by Apache FOP, but only when I use Distiller's 
Press Quality setting.  With Distiller's Standard setting, I don't get an error 
- presumably because Standard isn't as strict about the font issue reported in 
the log:

----%%[ Error: Times-BoldItalic not found. Font cannot be embedded. ]%%%%[ 
Error: invalidfont; OffendingCommand: findfont ]%%

%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%%%[ Warning: 
PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%----

What's strange is that I don't even use Times in this file.  The only font I 
use in my .fo file is Palatino Linotype.
Has anyone encountered this error before with Distiller?  

For more context, I generated the .ps file on the Mac, using FOP trunk 
(latest).  I was using Distiller from Acrobat Pro XI on Windows 7.  If it's 
useful, I've posted the .fo, fop.config and .ps files at the links below:



The 'original' ps file uses the fop-config.xml as is.  The 
'with-times-and-courier-defined' version uses the same config file, but with 
the times and courier entries uncommented.  The times and courier entries were 
my attempt to force FOP to embed Courier and Times from the Mac, since they 
both appeared in Distiller errors.  But embedding these didn't help.

My inclination is to try to strip the .ps file of any unused fonts, but I 
haven't been able to figure out how to do this.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
