I've narrowed this down to being a font problem but I can't seem to fix it. I wonder if anyone else has come across it before, I think it's a common print problem so fingers crossed.
I've created a form on PC with AI, converted to PDF then compiled in Acrobat. The form fields I've added in Acrobat Javascrpits in them and display different things depending on selections from other fields.
Everything is working as should except for the fields. They don't show the correct characters. My understanding is that the document is only embedding a subset of the font needed, there for when it is opened on Mac the wrong characters are displayed.
I figured all I need to do is embed the whole font into the document but I can't for the life of me work out how to do that.
I'm using MyriadPro which I though was one of adobe's 'safe' fonts.
Has anyone got any suggestions on either the cause of the problem or how to embed the whole font?
It is only happening on some Macs and not others. Most are using OSX.
