How to fix your IEEE pdf to embed fonts in Latex
I’m submitting a paper to IEEE. One of the requirements is that they ask you to put your pdf paper into their online checking system: http://www.pdf-express.org/
They sent me an email telling me that my paper wasn’t suitable for publication – some errors. These errors were because some fonts were not embedded – Helvetica and Symbol.
Get the diagnostic tools from:
Use pdffonts <your-file.pdf> command to check if your pdf file has the embedded fonts.
Then follow instructions here:
- latex file.tex (this produces file.dvi)
- dvips file.dvi (this produces file.ps)
- ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dSubsetFonts=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true -dMaxSubsetPct=100 -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 file.ps (this produces file.pdf)
Now run pdffonts file.pdf
Had a new problem – “Acrobat version is less than 5.0″
>> change dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 to dCompatibilityLevel=1.4
