           Summary: corrupt pdf with Palatino Linotype font
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 8.62
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: PDF Writer
        AssignedTo: ken.sharp at artifex.com
        ReportedBy: montython at googlemail.com
         QAContact: gs-bugs at ghostscript.com

platform: Win32
postscript creator: pscript5.dll (tested on Windows 2000 and XP)

A postscript file is generated from text with several Windows truetype fonts
including Palatino Linotype. When the postscript is distilled to pdf without
embedding any fonts, Palatino Linotype font gets corrupted while there are no
problems with the other fonts.
(tested fonts = Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana, Palatino Linotype)

gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4
-sOutputFile=out.pdf -c ".setpdfwrite << /EmbedAllFonts false >>
setdistillerparams" -f in.ps

This is the command used to create the corrupt pdf file.

The problem is not with the pdf viewers. I checked with several pdf viewers and
the result was the same.
I also tested the same postscript file with Acrobat Distiller (again without
embedding the fonts) and there were no problems with the resulting pdf.
