I think it is a licensing issue too. Sometimes Pitstop Inspector will even tell you that.

Unzip the attached file and import the preflight profile into Acrobat. Run it on the file you want to outline all fonts on. Rarely misses a font.

If you use it a lot create a droplet on your desktop and just drop PDF's on the droplet.
Can't seem to Import this to the Preflight panel - is that the format?

You did unzip it right? Yes the .kfp is an Acrobat DC preflight profile. You have to import from the preflight panel as shown below.

Do you have pitstop 2019?
If so in prefs you can turn off the font license thingy, just have to read the disclaimer

Bah, still a big old Fail.

I think I've only seen it not to outline all fonts once or maybe twice.

Yup, tried that too. No bueno.

What font is it?
They're those "stripped" T3 fonts like in my earlier post screenshot. Even doing a Select All with the Pitstop grabber there's no option to convert to Outlines. Might have to rasterize this batch if they're approved soon.

Maybe try using the Acrobat flattener and check the box to outline all fonts and see if that will work.

Do you really need to outline them?
Are they embedded?

I really do - our sign shop guy has always asked that - we USED to rasterize evrrrrrrything for sign work but that's just stupid.

Are they embedded?
They are, but they're not identified as anything. I'll PM ya the file.
