Subject: Illustrator PDF
I'm PDF'ing an Illustrator file (using Save As... | PDF Format), and the
TrueType fonts that I'm using (Arial and Times New Roman) are getting translated
into some undesirable Adobe fonts.
I could just use desirable Adobe fonts then resave to PDF, but I would like to
know if there is another way to retain the TrueType fonts. PDFWriter /
Distiller / AppleWriter seem to produce real 'bitmappy' fonts, and that won't
cut it for this project (my resume).
