PDF Export without embedded fonts BUG

Postby Brendon » Tue Apr 29, 2008 2:40 pm

I have been having problems reading PDF files created with TM08 after they are emailed to a PC viewing in adobe reader. If I choose not to embedd fonts into the file, when opened on a pc you get an error message about font embeding ' xWindowsxFontsxARIAL.TTF ', and all the text is replaced with dotts. I am only using arial.

I don't get this problem if I choose to embed fonts.

Hope you can help

Hello,

we have the same problem with PDF files exported out of TextMaker 2008 using the Acrobat Reader 8.1.
There are only dots instead of the Arial characters in the PDF file. But if you open the same PDF file in Foxit Reader, there is no problem at all.

I have referred this problem to our developers and will inform you here as soon as I have new information.

Currently there is no release date for the next revision yet. It will probably be released in a few weeks.
