Anyone heard of the font "T3font". I have a PDF that uses it twice in the document. I actually shows up as "T3font_0" and "T3font_1" the first time you open the PDF and check the fonts. Next time you open it and check the number behind the font name increases by 1 for both fonts. IE: "T3font_2" and "T3font_3".

Text looks fine before we process it. Original is RBG black, but we run it through Prinergy to Grayscale, and the PDF looks a bit fuzzy when "Fit to Window", but zooming in looks ok. CSR is worried what the customer is going to say.

Thoughts?

I think it should be OK as long as it looks OK when zoomed in. Try printing high res laser and see how it looks on there.

Same thing I have told the CSR. Strange thing too, is when I tried to outline the font in Pitstop, it wouldn't touch it. And when I selected the text, each character is it's own element, and it looks as if it is below the selection. Very strange.

Probably a freeware font of questionable quality. I've seen them with strange characteristics before too. Though not this particular one.

I seem to remember there was a Postscript Type 3 Font format that was never really adopted by the industry. I'm just about to have my first coffee of the morning and am still a bit groggy...

I vaguely remember the Type 3 fonts too. Very short lived.

A quick search confirms I have about 20 Type3 fonts lurking around, from 1986-8.  I have some bitmap fonts too from even earlier but of course I never use any of them ... anyone remember a font called Chicago?  :rolleyes:
