Help with embedded fonts

Sometimes the embedding of fonts can be an issue. Here are some points to overcome this problem.

Times, Helvetica etc are used by usepackage{}: if you do not really need this, disable and run pdflatex. Otherwise, use the command ‘pdffonts yourfilename.pdf’ to identify if all the fonts are embedded. Ensure that the columns for ‘emb’ and ‘sub’ have only ‘yes’ in it. If not, either use adobe utilities, or try

  1. pdftops filename.pdf
  2. ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dEmbedAllFonts=true newfilename.pdf

Now you can upload the file newfilename.pdf (please also check pdffonts to see ‘yes’). In maths, the bbm package usually is problematic. In such cases, a brute force replacement by some other compatible package or changing the notation will do the trick of eliminating type3 fonts. Use pdffonts to see any Type 3 fonts, such fonts will not pass the pdfeXpress check during the final submission.

External images by includegraphics{} can create problems. A quick way to check is by using documentclass[draft,letter,conference,10pt] as preamble and run pdflatex. If the problem is the images, you can perform the step below.  One way is to embed the fonts in each image, by the following command

gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dEmbedAllFonts=true \ -sOutputFile=OUTPUT_FILE_NAME.pdf -f INPUT_FILE_NAME.pdf

and then run pdflatex yourfilename.tex
