Embedded font problem in pdf


I've made multiple pdfs from my indesign files and combined them in preview to make one big pdf. I have no problems viewing it in preview but when I or my client try to open it in Acrobat it crashes or gives this error message: Cannot extract the embedded font xxxxx. Some charcters may not display or print correctly.

Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it?

Extract Font Face


Can someone tell me how to extract a font face from a font family? I have the Gill Sans font family but need Gill Sans bold as a separate font.

It's complicated to explain why, but I'm working on a big Flash project and the engineering team can only get one face for a font to work with our embedding process. I need both font faces as their own font to embed them both.
