Hello:I'm on Windows 8.1. Microsoft Office Standard 2003.
I'm using the free dopdf converter. It converts fine.
How do I embed the fonts.
Thank you for your help.
Word will actually Save As a PDF.
Hi Kevin:I have 2003. The help page is for 2007 & 2010. My 2003 doesn't have the option to save it as a PDF.
I'm trying to do this without investing in another program. I worked on this one thing for several hours today. At this point I'm so frustrated because it is a momentary task with the right programs. I am trying the free PDF converters listed on this site. I haven't yet found one that will work on my computer. I'll have to keep trying. I even called around to printers in my area and no one knows what I'm talking about. I figured if anyone would have the wherewithal to convert with embedded fonts it would be a printing shop. I guess not.
I got this far. With one converter I don't see anything that tells me the fonts are embedded even though I set them, saved them and verified that the settings took. That is with NovaPDF 8.
With doPDF it shows the fonts are embedded as a subset. Lulu says that will cause problems.
I embedded fonts with doPDF and published a book earlier this week. It is now sitting on my desk.
I'll answer here instead of in the PM so that perhaps others who have the same problem can benefit.
In Word you can go to Save As/Tools/Save Options/Embed fonts. DoPDF will do the rest. Don't analyze the file too much. The fonts have been embedded. Just order a proof.
Good luck to you.
I am using word 2003. Embedding fonts is not one of the options. I embedded them with doPDF. I will order a proof.
Thank you Bramble.
I will order my proof.
If CutePDf will run on your box it has a setting under advanced printing options that allows embedding as softfont, which embeds the font for printing quite well.

Thank you SphinxCameron: For the information.
Thank you everyone for your input. It is invaluable. I just ordered a proof of my first book. It was a tough row to hoe, as the old adage goes but I got through it. Next time it will be so much easier!
Thanks again for all your time and effort.
Brilliant and simple answer.
