The pdf I created for press publication of a quarterly journal for a
nonprofit organization does not have all fonts -- especially base 14
fonts -- embedded, which is required by the out-of-state printer we are using.
I checked the settings in Distiller 9.0 and "Embed all fonts" is
checked. But base 14 fonts are exempt.
The printer rep said they can do the embedding for a surcharge, but
I'd rather not go that route.
I've read up a much as I could handle on base 14 fonts, and have seen
something called "PDF enhancer" by Apago, which runs $199 for the
Standard Edition for Windows, $399 for the Professional Edition, and
lots more for the two server versions. I can't see in their
descriptions which -- if any -- embeds base 14 fonts, plus I'm not
crazy about the pricing either.
So what to do?
