Sometimes my fonts get changed to Italic in pdf

Here's an example. None of this is italic in the Framemaker document. But when I save to pdf, Every instance of Adobe Garamond Pro Bold gets converted to italic. But it's only the bold - the regular survives intact. In the past it's happened with other fonts. Illumination?

Thanks,

Jack

What version of FM? If you use the regular font and tell the character tag definition to bold it, does that survive the transition to PDF? How are you creating the PDF - print to the Adobe PDF "printer" or Save As PDF?

Thank you, Jeff.

Version: 2017, although I have had the same problem in multiple earlier versions.

Also: it's intermittent. A similar document from the same template worked just fine last fall.

Character tag: I'm not using one. The paragraph tag specifies Adobe Garamond Pro Bold, which is listed separately from Adobe Garamond Pro.

I'm using Save As PDF (it crashes on print to pdf)

Well, first I'd suggest getting the new update for FM2017 installed; then I would look at the font itself - maybe it's got something in it that's wonky - if you try using it in other programs, does it behave the same way when PDFed? Are you running the full version of Acrobat or just the "headless" one that ships with FM?

Acrobat: full version. And it's happened with earlier versions.

Font: it's happened with other fonts, too.

Other programs: not yet.

Update: I'll try it.

Thanks again for your help.

Are you using the CMYK or RGB option when doing the SaveAsPDF? The CMYK option uses a different header and has issues with some Pro OTF fonts. Use the RGB option unless you specifically need press-ready PDFs.
