I have received a PDF file as an attachment to an email and can open and view and print it from within the email but when I save the file to my computer and then try to open the file I get an error message saying that CIDFont+F1 cannot be created or found. The file opens but the text is just displayed as a series of dots.
I have confirmed that I am using the most current version of Adobe Reader.
Any advice on what the problem might be and how to resolve would be appreciated.
i have the same issue, is there any solution?
That is an exporting problem. I mean some software or online programs when they export the PDFs they cant decode the font.
That is why you are getting that problem.
The font CIDFont+F1 is Arial (blod) and CIDFont+F2 is Arial (Regular)
Just in case, on the files I got with a similar issue F1 was mapped to Arial and F2 was Arial Bold.
Use "Times New Roman" family fonts in place of f1(times new roman regular), f2 (times new roman bold),
I have the same problem just now. Neither Arial or Times New Roman is the font as I can see in the preview...
Just had the same problem.
I opened the pdf in Preview then exported as PDF.
Perfect usable file!!
