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.
Thank you, it's very helpful
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!!
This worked... opening in preview and exporting as PDF. THanks
Thanks! This works like Miracles! Thanks tips.. The PDF needs to go tru Preview at the first place.. 😉 Perfect!!!
Try Roboto font instead of CID fonts.
I faced same issue but I tried with Myriad pro on the place of CIDFont+F1. I got the right solution. Font appericane/look exact same. Thank you 🙂
