Thank you,
Unfortunately this is not an option I have very content sensitive files, i.e. 
changing a font would completely destroy them. Even changing Type1 to TrueType 
creates problems. Also, it might work with one or two files - but I have about 
200 completely different files with about 50 different fonts and which one will 
be next giving trouble is hard to tell...
