Acrobat consolidating duplicate fonts
After all, it’s a PDF authoring application, which is supposed to let you edit/modify existing PDF files, provided that you have the required security rights.
This was a plain PDF file produced by Mac OS X, so it didn’t have any security settings. It was time for supper so, just in case, I figured I would try one more time with Acrobat and leave the application in its apparently frozen state, just in case it would somehow get out of it and actually work eventually. I don’t know how long it took, but when I came back from supper, Acrobat was back! Unfortunately, when I looked at the resulting PDF file, its size was still huge.
I have a database that I converted from File Maker 6 (i.e. The layout was created in File Maker 6, but appears to have been preserved just fine. It just consists of a table with shades of grey in the heading part and in the space between cells. Much to my surprise, the resulting PDF file was over 3 megabytes!
The Document Properties setting overrides the Preferences setting.
If using Document Properties, be sure to save and close the document for the change to take effect.
Choose Add Fonts from the File menu, select the font or a folder containing multiple fonts, then click Open to install the font(s).
When Font Book installs a font, it will automatically validate the font and let you know if it detects any issue with the font file.
Acrobat users can change the initial view, unless security settings prevent changes. The "Default Page Layout" option never worked for me, but I've found another option in the Preferences that seems to work: Open Preferences.
