Acrobat consolidating duplicate fonts

Acrobat Distiller offers an option to automatically add missing fonts to Post Script files it has to process.

In the font locations menu, the user can define several folders that have to be searched for fonts that are missing in the Post Script file.

This makes sure that the file can be viewed and printed as it was created by the designer.

Older versions of Adobe Acrobat (Acrobat 3.x and earlier) will never embed the following 14 fonts in a PDF file: These fonts, excluding Zapf Dingbats, are called the Base 13 fonts.You actually cannot extract a font from a PDF, not even if the font is fully embedded.There are two reasons why this is not feasible: I am not aware of any font extraction tools but if you come across one, the above reasons should make it clear that these utilities are to be avoided.Acrobat lets you preview and arrange the documents and pages before creating the file.You can delete unwanted pages and move individual pages from a document anywhere among the pages being combined.
