PDFfilter: Font encoding in Adobe Indesign
posted by crack to computers & internet (2 answers total)
When I export a PDF in Adobe Indesign CS2, it encodes a line of text in Identity-H format if that line contains a special character, such as a ligature or ellipsis. Otherwise, the line is encoded in ANSI. Apparently, these lines print differently (the printer is lulu.com). To fix this, I tried distilling the PDF instead of exporting - this causes some lines to have "Roman" encoding, and the rest are still in ANSI. Is Roman encoding better than Identity-H? And is there a way to force Indesign or Distiller to use the same encoding for all lines?
