Subject Re: Distiller errors with postscript generated by FOP
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 23:11:42 GMT
Hi Robert,

Thanks so much for your quick reply.  I changed optimize-resources
from false to true, and while Distiller no longer complains about
Times and Courier, it is complaining about Helvetica.  Checking the
.ps file, I see Times and Courier are no longer referenced, but
Helvetica is.  It's not explicitly identified in my .fo file, and I
didn't intend for Helvetica to be there; I wonder if it's lurking
because of some block that lacks an explicit font-family?

If it helps, I've uploaded the resulting .ps file to:

With Distiller's Standard setting, I don't get an error - presumably because Standard isn't
as strict about the font issue reported in the log:

using Distiller from Acrobat Pro XI on Windows 7.  If it's useful, I've posted the .fo, fop.config
and .ps files at the links below:

version uses the same config file, but with the times and courier entries uncommented.  The
times and courier entries were my attempt to force FOP to embed Courier and Times from the
Mac, since they both appeared in Distiller errors.  But embedding these didn't help.
