Using PageMaker 7.0 on an XP platform.
After preparing a file, I run the SAVE FOR SERVICE PROVIDER utility
prior to performing the PDF export. Quite often I get the dreaded red
"X" and the "Summary" tab message:
Fonts are not okay for printing or
creating a package for service provider.
I then click the "Fonts" tab where it says:
Fonts needed for this publication
are not available.
The report box, however, shows that the two fonts I use are identified
by name and indicated as "installed."
Then I attempt to hunt down the problem, assuming that it's an unused
type container on the paste board... eliminating that possibility by a
maximum reduction and doing a CTRL + A to see what might be invisible to
Then I do a CTRL + A inside each type box to see if there's a remnant of
that pesky "Times" font somewhere within.
Finally, I save the file to another name, and start deleting type
containers, running the checking utility at each step of the way... and
get that same red "X" everytime, even when everything seems to be
removed from the pasteboard.
What step am I missing? How do I resolve this problem?
