With Framemaker 19: When I save a document with an embedded Greek font to PDF, it scrambles the Greek. I have Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. Please advise.

Is this math symbol Greek, or actual Greek language?

Is it a legacy overlay font, or are you using Unicode code points for all Greek characters?
What are the embed permissions for the font?

What does "scramble" mean?

Seconding @Bob_Niland here … With the limited information given, it is difficult to help. Some screenshots, the actual and full version number will be also helpful.

 

When you write “FrameMaker 19”, you probably mean FrameMaker 15.x.x (a.k.a. “2019 release)”.

Please let us know the full version number (> Help > About FrameMaker…). The latest version of the 2019 release is version 15.0.7. If your version does is lower than 15.0.7, please update (> Help > Updates…).

 

The latest version is Adobe FrameMaker 16.0.0 (a.k.a. “Summer 2020 release”).

It appears that LaserGreek is available as a legacy overlay font (possibly using codepoints \xA0…\xFF, which in Unicode are Latin1 Supplement characters), and as a native Unicode font (code points \u0370…\u03FF).
So that question remains open,

as does the question of what "scrambles" means.
