Please bear with me if I'm asking a stupid question - wouldn't be the first
time...and likely won't be the last. :-\
We're using FM 7.2 on Win XP with Acrobat 7.0. We have a paragraph format in
FM that uses a character format for the autonumbered item to create a graphic
preceding the text. It's for cautionary notices. The character format uses
Bullets3.ttf, because that's the only font our client had available that
provided a exclamation point inside of a triangle. The font is on our licensed
Corel Draw 12 installation CDs, and we've got enough licenses. We installed
the font via Control Panel > Fonts, File > Install New Fonts.
To address the issues with inconsistent display of "non-standard" fonts in
PDF, we've been embedding the fonts when we create the PDF. However, it seems
that the Bullets3 font doesn't get embedded. The way we've been creating the
PDFs is by selecting the Adobe PDF printer instance and printing to a .ps
file. We've made sure that the several places that have "Do not send fonts to
Adobe PDF" are all unchecked. Within Distiller's PDF settings, we have
selected to embed all fonts and subset, but Bullets3 doesn't show in any of
the 3 lists in the Embedding area.
This problem is happening on all of our PCs and laptops in the department,
so at least if it's something we screwed up, we've been consistent. Ha!
What (if anything) can we do to get the Bullets3 font to show in the list of
fonts to embed? I'm beginning to wonder if this has something to do with a
years-old string that I think I remember Dov and others commenting about some
fonts allowing some things and not others... Any insight would be greatly
