I just checked it on my Windows 10 installation and it cannot be selected for exclusion from the embed list, which means that it is not embeddable. I will check on this, but my guess is that you cannot use that font in PDF. Even when it is present the character spacing will be all wrong in PDF.
Hi Tim, MS Gothic font is definitely editable embedded. I think this issue is about how keyboard and font settings interact. Windows can filter "fonts we don't think you'll need"
from lists, as explained in The New Font Control Panel in Windows 7
, and those greyed out fonts are the ones that are missing from the dialog displayed by H&M 7 when you select "Add Font to Exclude List".
If you go into control panel and add Japanese as an input method (you don't need to change your current keyboard), MS Gothic is no longer greyed out in control panel's font folder, and is now visible in H&M's dialog
. So adding Japanese input might be a quick solution for Mark Foersch. Longer term you might want to investigate whether the right "CHARSET" flags are being used by the PDF maker etc.
Postscript. You don't necessarily need to add another language input. Try this:
- Control Panel > Fonts > View installed fonts
- Select the font family you want to force visible in dialogs
- Click 'Show' in the menu bar
Font family is no longer greyed-out in control panel folder
Font family is no longer excluded from the H&M dialog
