Thank you to all who responded to my plea for help Pagemaker (PM)
font display issue. I finally resolved it and thought I'd send this to the
list in case anyone else encountered this problem.
PM exporting/pdf issue
While updating a PM publication, I encountered an problem when exporting
the publication to pdf. I was using a non-standard font, typing characters
to obtain a symbol, like a Wingding font. This font appeared fine in the
publications would not export and displayed only as the characters typed to
obtain the font.
The tech at Adobe support told me that when a publication is moved from one
computer to another, the document setting resident with the document change
back to their defaults. (We keep our docs on a common drive, which the
publication may "read" as a different computer?) In this document setting,
there is a printer instruction. The default instruction is "?What printer?"
Which means that anything you do to set printing/exporting functions will
NOT take effect.
To resolve this issue:
1. Choose File, Document Set up. In dialog box, choose Compose to Printer:
2. Choose File, Printer Styles, Define. Choose Acrobat.
3. Choose File, Export to pdf. Choose Acrobat as printer.
The font printed out perfectly on the pdf! Success!!
