Title: Fonts no longer embedding
Post by: AdeSmith on March 03, 2016, 02:01:51 pm
Hey all. I'm having trouble getting the TrebuchetMS font to embed in my pdf documents. I recently brought a new windows 10 laptop and started to use Scribus on it to carry on with projects I'd started on my old system. The problem I'm having is that newly created PDFs don't seem to embed the font (Adobe reader says it's a type 3 font) while the old PDFs I created on my old system have successfully embedded. I've compared both lots of settings to see if they are different and It seems they match up, The fonts have subset deselected but I can see no other options for me to change.

Does anyone have any ideas why it no longer embeds this?

There may be some copyright issues that stop you from embedding the new Windows 10 font that weren't in place (or enforced) with the font on your old system.

The license for that font on OSX says: "You may only (i) embed this font in content as permitted by the embedding restrictions included in this font; and (ii) temporarily download this font to a printer or other output device to help print content."

These links might help:

Until you can find what the problem is you might have to set that font to outline on export instead.
