When we look at the Adobe PDF Printing Preference from Control Panel/Printers,
Under the Adobe PDF Settings tab, there is a checkbox (Do not send fonts to “Adobe PDF”)
“Do not send fonts…” is checked as default when Distiller is installed. We are using VB code to invoke PrintToPDF (Distiller printer). The conversion does not work if the “do not send fonts…” is checked.
We DO want to send fonts to each document that is converted to PDF, and thus wish to uncheck the box programmatically.
If this cannot be done, is there another way to force sending fonts? It looks like the default Standard conversion settings are set to embed all fonts. What is the difference between Embedding fonts and “Do not send..”? Could we use a specific .joboptions file to force certain fonts to be embedded? Will job settings override the check box?
