pdf font problems

Recommended Posts

when trying to export a pdf, I keep getting "There was an error processing a page. Bad font object or font descriptor object." and thus no pdf or sometimes only partial. What is this how do I fix it?

What platform are you on. Font problems have very different solutions in Mac OSX and Windows

What font is it? Was it a free font? It sounds like you may have a corrupt font.

Backup before you do this.

Try opening Computer, right click on your C drive, choose tools tab, click Check Now... under Error-Checking. Check "Automatically fix file system errors" and click start. You will receive a dialog box that says Windows can't check the disk while in use. Click on Schedule disk check, click OK in the Local Disk Properties window check and restart your computer. On restart it will scan your file system, this may take some time.

You may want to do a search on google for "vista corrupt font" and find a utility to scan for corrupt font.
