PDF stands for Portable Document Format [WIKI]. Not in all cases this format is that portable. Sometimes this is due to some special fonts that are not so widespread and are not included or embedded in the PDF file. To make the document portable in that sense, we may want to embed all the fonts.
Just follow the following simple steps:
- Convert your PDF to a PS [WWW]
- Make all the fonts embedded in the PS file and convert to PDF
ps2pdf -dSAFER -dNOPLATFONTS -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dEmbedAllFonts=true -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress file.ps file.pdf
Credits go to [WWW]. I copied this into my blog just to have a trace in case I will need it one day.
