Is there a utility that will batch test fonts to check which CAN and/or CANNOT be embedded in an Export to PDF?
I want to organise a (too large) collection of fonts so that when working on a project that must have fonts embedded in the PDF I will only have embed-able (?) fonts installed to choose from. This will help enormously as the job is to a tight deadline and frequently I get to the stage of creating PDFs only to have to return to the (Quark) file and change fonts, which is not good. (yikes!)
I use Nexus Font for managing fonts, it doesn't do this. At the moment I'm doing it font by font, a batch utility would be a huge help.
I understand the problem is in the font licenses, I have been everywhere looking for a solution so not to have to manually check each font file's properties individually... if Acrobat can tell, surely a utility could exist??
Font embeddability shows in a font's Properties window, in the Details Tab. If I could get this to show in an Explorer like window for lists of fonts that would be super. I'm on Win7 and haven't been able to show this, yet. I will persevere.
OK I may have a solution. The program MainType - Windows Font Manager will show the Embedding info for fonts. I've only just installed the trial so don't know if it's an ideal solution but I have high hopes of now being able to separate fonts by this attribute. (Not connected to MainType, just found it with all the searching)
