I’d stumbled across something interesting when testing the fontcat macro.
The macro was run, and all my installed fonts were in one CorelDRAW document as a font samples (I have 389 fonts installed at the moment.)
As I went to publish to PDF, I was presented list of fonts that didn’t have embed rights into PDF’s.
While I understand a font author’s point of view to protect their work, I’m not sure how easy it is to extract a font from a PDF anyway…
If a designer is working on a 20 page text-heavy document and can’t generate a PDF without converting to curves, the designer would prefer to know this in advance so that they can choose another font during the design process.
