The Fonts controls (Figure 15) let you head off the most common problems associated with a printing environment. You will need to find out from the print service whether they have trouble with TrueType, OpenType, or other fonts and set these controls as needed. For my eBooks, I need to make sure that the fonts are all embedded and, in particular, embedded as subsets. (The subsetting is important for keeping the file size down.)

Figure 15 The only thing I care about in the Fonts panel is whether my fonts are embedded as subsets. However, if you are sending a PDF file out for professional printing, you should find out whether your print service has problems with any of the common font types. (There are still service bureaus out there that can’t reliably print TrueType fonts, for example.)
