In my office we are using Structured FrameMaker 11 in a Windows 7 environment.

A co-worker is encountering an error message when creating postscript files 
from Structured FrameMaker 11 files to send to the printer. The FrameMaker 
console displays the following message:
The "Times" Font is not available.
It will be replaced by "Times New Roman".

This error message does not display when the FrameMaker template is opened, or 
when the xml file that is imported into the FrameMaker template is imported.

I created a MIF file of the FM11 template and neither Times or Times New Roman 
is included in the template. The problem seems to occur when postscripts or 
PDFs are created. I noticed the error message displaying on my computer when I 
created a PDF with registration marks. When I viewed the pdf there is file 
information that appears at the top of the PDf near the registration marks that 
includes the file name, date, and time. This information appears as Times New 
Roman. When the co-worker created a PDf without using registration marks, the 
font error message still displayed.

I added the following line of code to my maker.ini file:
Times, *, *, *=Times New Roman, *, *, *
and this appears to have eliminated the font error message from displaying.

I'd like to determine where this Times font or the reference to times exists so 
that I can eliminate it altogether. Times does not appear to be in the 
FrameMaker templates, the EDD, or the read/write Rules.

Is there a systems file that FM11 launches when creating postscripts and PDFs 
that might contain code that references "Times" instead of "Times New Roman"?
Any help with resolving this will be appreciated.
