Ok, this should be easy:
I'm trying to get fonts to work with the "save as PDF" in FileMaker 8.
All the Type One's and Opentype fonts I've tried drop extended characters when a PDF is made with FileMaker's PDF generator, although the same page printed to the Acrobat 7 printer works. (This in spite of the fact that FileMaker licensed the Acrobat engine from Adobe.)
Anyway, I find that Truetype fonts work, so I think, weird, but, okay, I'll regenerate my Adobe Caslon as a Truetype for use in Filemaker.
BUT I can't get the encoding to work: é becomes É, that kind of thing. If I generate an OpenType or Type 1 with what I think are the same encodings, the accents work, but the PDF doesn't.
I know I'm missing something simple: I never make Truetype, because I figure OT is the way to go, but not this time.
Thanks in advance.
