What about afm fonts? I also have them in that format. Would Inkscape work with those? I can do what I want in Illustrator, but just wanted to switch to Inkscape.

According to the FAQ, Inkscape supports type 1 fonts since version 0.46, so I don't think a conversion is necessary.

So there is no way for Inkscape to use pfb fonts? This PDF has the fonts embedded, but Inkscape does not support embedded fonts just yet.

comment How to use Windows Type-1 fonts in Inkscape on a Mac?
Thank you for the suggestion. I forgot to say that converting the fonts is not a viable option. For two reasons: there are many fonts with a pfb file for each font size/style (these are TeX fonts) and when I convert a single pfb file (e.g. cmr5.pfb), OS X imports it using its name (e.g. Computer Modern), not the CMR5 id that appears in the pdf. Thus, Inkscape can't use it.

Fontbook doesn't work with type 1 fonts.
