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?

Easy way to generate a Glyph/Character Map of fonts?


Does any one know how to create a Glyph/Character map, say like how myfonts.com uses? http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/fontbureau/juliana/text-roman/characters.html

I am trying to create some previews of my font designs, but cannot find a way to do something like this, and in a batch process. Any ideas?

What do you think is a good type(promotion) catalog

Mostly designers deliver a PDF preview of their font(s) when one in made. About how it's made, how it looks, blabla. What is your opinion about what should be in it? And which already excisting promotions do you think are good?

I'm trying to make one for myself (more like a catalog but well designed), containing my font collection.

The Preview window in FontLab - can I change it's render settings?


Is it possible to change the way the preview window in FontLab renders the font I'm working on?

I'm working on a screen font, and when I test it within the application I'm making it for it renders really sharp, stems are sharp 1 px lines. In the FontLab preview the render is much smoother, pretty much every line is very fuzzy.

So I'm thinking, maybe I can change how fontlab renders the font, to more accurately emulate how it's displayed in different rendering engines?
