I have added an SVG file to a IND document. I want to export this to PDF. But there is a font missing according to IND. It offers me replacement, but somehow this doesn't do anything. There is a Futura font on my system.

 

The SVG contains 

font-family="Futura"

 

How do I make IDD find that font or link it to whatever is in the SVG?

I found a workaround: I downloaded inkscape and used it to convert the SVG to PDF.

Weshalb hast du nicht mit Adobe Illustrator die Grafik als PDF/AI gespeichert. Dessen Qualität und Möglichkeiten sind doch viel besser?

Illustrator can also handle this, I believe.
