Scribus > PDF Generation

Dreaded PDF I and L problems with OFT font

(1/3) > >>

c-m:
I've used Scribus to produce a document that is intended for web.

I created a PDF and embedded the fonts (myraid pro OTF)

The PDF displays fine in Linux Mint 11, but when viewed on windows machines, there is a problem with the letter L and I

I'm using Scribus 1.3.3.13svn on Mint 11.

Please help

Nermander:
You left out the most important information: What program are you using to view the PDF?

Also, have you tried printing it? If a font lacks good hinting it may look bad on screen but perfect while printed (this is due to the difference in resolution).

Instead of printing you can also try to zoom in to for example 400%.

Prints great in both windows and linux, but it's a CV so need to work in Adobe Reader 9 and above.

I read the information here: http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/How_do_I_prevent_fonts_from_looking_ugly_in_the_exported_PDF_%3F

But in my version of Scribus going to File-->Preferences-->Fonts there is no "subset" option.

Nermander:
Why not write it in Open Office Writer (also free, and has native PDF export) instead?

I can't really see the point in using Scribus for a CV. Scribus has always been targeted at printing.

For the same reason you might use indesign or quark. Aren't they applications for layout? Open office can't really do what I require. I might need to print the CV as well, and when creating reports I usually require an electronic copy for e-mail.
