I've got no idea what could be wrong with your font, but just thought I'd
comment that we use that font and have no problems with embedding it.
Our font files are dated 14/10/1999. Using FM7.0 and Win XP SP2.
Did it work in the past for you, or is this the first time you've tried to use

Some fonts are restricted from being embedded by the font foundry. It is
an attribute of the font files. This prevents them from being extracted
from the PDF by a third party and reused.

Subject: Distiller 7 missing fonts
(sigh) I know this question must have been asked dozens of times.
Using FrameMaker 7.1 p116 and Acrobat Professional (Distiller) 7.0.7.
Windows XP SP2.
I try to create a PDF from FrameMaker using File > Save as PDF.
Distiller fires up but fails to produce a PDF (because of my settings)
with the following message:
%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
%%[ Error: GillSans not found. Font cannot be embedded. ]%%
%%[ Error: invalidfont; OffendingCommand: findfont ]%%
The GillSans it refers to is installed on my system using ATM Lite. It's
a Type 1 PostScript produced by Adobe, file name GN___.pfm and .pfb.
There are a number of related fonts - the italic, bold, etc.
In Distiller the font locations are set to:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat 7.0\Resource\Font\
And a couple of other places.
In Distiller's Adobe PDF Settings the Embed all fonts option is checked,
as is Subset embedded fonts when percent...is less than 100%. And "When
embedding fails" is set to Cancel job.
I removed and reinstalled the fonts from the original disk using ATM,
but the message still appears. In FrameMaker the paragraph formats using
these fonts are OK - i.e. the font is not greyed in the paragraph
