I have just used the plug-in for the first time, pretty green at both
prepress and the depths of PM65 Win95. My 1 page layout used 4
TTfonts, all various poor Optima types & 1 Garamond. We have no PS
I tried both this and save for printer plug-in, and the printer
prefers NOT to get a PS file, so I used the simpler, gather all fonts
& links approach. I did the preflight, and substituted one missing
font by replacing on the page itself, then preflight said all fonts
were loaded & OK. I checked the "include fonts" whatsis, and saved the
file. All seemed fine, but on examining the contents of the "fonts"
folder included in that file, I saw 1 of the Optima type TTFs, and
only one other...a "Times(something)" font in bold, italic, etc.
PM tech support folks don't know why, and suggested downloading the
patch for this plug-in, suspecting it might address this, but I
checked it out, and it doesn't. In order to supply the fonts I tried
copying them from Windows/fonts to the folder manually. I emailed it
off & don't know yet if it went OK.
Anyone have a clue? This file prints fine on my Laserjet, and gives no
font error messages or substitution messages.
