I'd like to print an FM document in CMYK.
There is only one paragraph tag used in the document.
The paragraph tag includes the font 'Arial Unicode MS'.
The PDF has to be in CMYK (Print vendor's requirement).
The font has to be 'Arial Unicode MS'.
The PDF creation is faultless.
But the embedding of the font is faulty:
'Arial Unicode MS' is a True type font (TTF).
But Acrobat 'thinks', it's an Adobe 'Type 1' font.
The result is that the PDF is not searchable.
But it has to be searchable.
FM versions: FM10.0.2 or FM 2015 -> Same result
Where did I go wrong?
How can I force the correct embedding of 'Arial Unicode MS' in a CMYK PDF file?

It sounds like it has to do with the font. Can you double check that the appropriate font is in use, and that all versions of the font are actually installed?
Make sure that subsetting of the font is disabled as well.
Many thanks for the hints.
you probably can't do anything about it, the Arial Unicode font is highly problematic. There's a similar thread about text which cannot be searched in a PDF. I've done several tests, and the results showed that it's definitely the font which makes the difference: http://www.meissner-dokuteam.de/Files/Frame/Test_FM_imported_graphics_2.pdf
There's a minor difference because the thread above is about imported PDF graphics which are not searchable in FrameMaker PDF output, but it's basically the same problem.
Many thanks for the help.
It can be a problem with 'Arial Unicode MS'. But I think, it's not only a font problem:
