Summary0004562: PDF Export: Subsetting of OTF fonts (CFF variant) as Type1 subsets in PDF version < 1.6
DescriptionPlease consider embedding OTF fonts subsets as Type1 font subsets (not outlines) in exported PDF files for PDF versions < 1.6

In particular, please check if it's a viable solution to:

-- decompress OTF font (CFF variant) while exporting to PDF
-- extract its Type1 content and embed its subset into PDF

Additional InformationWe've already discussed it with avox in 0003701 -- that's probably the way Indesign manages embedding of OTF subsets (see the PDF files attached to 0003701)
TagsNo tags attached.
PatchNo

Hey, a guy by the name of Eddie Kohler has already made a tool for this. It's called "cffto1" http://www.lcdf.org/~eddietwo/type/cfftot1.1.html - now, isn't that nice:)

"Cfftot1 translates a Compact Font Format (CFF) font, or a PostScript-flavored OpenType font, into PostScript Type 1 format. It correctly handles subroutines and hints."

Other font tools by the same guy:
