Why am I getting font differences when printing from PDF?

Postby TechnicalSupportTeam » Fri Feb 24, 2006 11:20 am

I am printing from a PDF file, and when I view the generated EMF file, the Font looks fine, but if I close Acrobat, the font changes. Why is this?

Answer:

This is normal.

The PDF file contains information about the font. It's saved in the PDF file.
When you open the PDF file, the acrobat reader installs the font so you can use it, and if you print to a new file, it will look ok.

However, when you close the Acrobat reader, the font is uninstalled, and the file you generated can not use the font. The EMF file format doesn't save
information about font in the EMF file, so if the font isn't installed on the system, the font will not be displayed correctly in the EMF file.
