problem; I haven't ever had any problems), but you can embed fonts by
choosing "Save as File" from the menu in the Print dialogue (the menu
that displays "General" by default) and then setting "Font Inclusion"
to anything other than "None" (I usually use "All" or "All but
standard 13"--the latter if I'm using, in addition to "custom fonts",
some of the standard PDF fonts that are installed on every system and
want to cut down on the filesize a bit).
I'm away at the moment, but I can explain in greater detail next week
if this doesn't make sense :-)
