PDFs and Fonts Within (Arial-BOLDMT)
We generate most of our proofing through Quark by exporting PDFs. Very quick and easy. I have to create between 30-50 of these a day and I have no desire to make this process longer by writing and then distilling.
We create our signoff sheets on a PC. In particular, the font Arial is used, specifically Arial-BoldMT (that's the way it is listed in the PDF). When I try to import this PDF that has been created on the PC, into my quark file on the MAC, I can frequently tell that Quark has not seen the Arial-BoldMT correctly and there are gaps in words, extra spaces in the lines of text, etc.
We are using Linotype Font Explorer (what a god-send) to manage fonts. I can see int FontEx that arial is turned on... and it specifically is named "Arial-BoldMT". I can open this PDF on the MAC and see that the font is there. Acrobat 8.0 does not give me a font warning etc. However, when I try to export the document from Quark as a PDF, it tells me that the font is missing. The font is a TrueType font... is that a problem?
Any suggestions, solutions?
