Quote from: apastuszak on July 03, 2014, 04:33:01 PM... what is the better option, to embed the font or outline the font?
Quotecan a subset of the font be embedded?
QuoteAre there legal issues with embedding fonts and then distributing the PDFs?
Quote from: apastuszak on July 03, 2014, 10:10:24 PMIs there any loss of quality or change in the appearance of the fontwhen you outline instead of embed?
QuoteDoes outlining get around font licensing requirements?
Quote from: Nermander on July 04, 2014, 08:29:01 AMI also think that outlining a font removes hinting information, which means the quality in low resolutions suffer. For print (which would be considered high resolution) the difference will probably not be noticeable, but for viewing on screen it might look worse.

Quote from: apastuszak on July 08, 2014, 12:15:45 AMbecause the "hinting" in the Type I file produced superior printed output at smaller point sizes, unsually output less than 9 point.

That's because at small sizes the resolution also gets smaller. But from what I understand hinting is mostly useful on screen.3 mm letters on paper don't need hinting, but 3 mm letters on a screen do.
