Cannot extract the embedded font 'F2'. Some characters may not display or print correctly.

This question was previously published but no answer has been found.
Error message is :
"Cannot extract the embedded font 'F2'. Some characters may not display or print correctly."
Many pdf documents display this error with Adobe Reader 8.1.0. We have errors for embedded fonts 'F0','F3','F7' and so on.
It looks like a Adobe Reader bug because :
- All PDF files can be opened with Acrobat Reader 5.0.5, 6.x and 7.x, can't be opened with 8.1.0 version.
- the 8.1.1 update removes only the bug for 'F0' error message (issue #1572280).
The solution :
- to publish a 8.1.2 update to fix this important bug
- is there a registry parameter or tool option to disable the checking added in 8.x version of Adobe Reader ? The 8.x version catches more errors to be compliant with Adobe specification but Adobe reader must be
compliant with all documents generated by third party products.
This Adobe Reader bug applies to Windows Vista, XP Pro SP2, 2000.
Thx,
Regards

Just to let you know, for anyone else with this problem. I had this problem occur on a MAC when you tried to do save to PDF in excel. This was all happening at the point of generation of the PDF in my case.
The fix was to delete ALL the microsoft preferences, but perahps only the font cache needed to be deleted.
I deleted the following areas from the local users userprofile on the mac. On windows, I would probably log in as a differnet user to try to see if the problem just exsists for one particular user.
Here are the sections I deleted:
Library/caches/metadata/Microsoft*
Username/library/preferences/com.microsoft* ( and anyhting with microsoft in it)
I did leave the entourage settings though.
hope it helps someone with a similar issue.

  • Cannot extract the embedded font arial.Some char might not be displayed

    Hi Folks,
                  Our requirement is to generate the customer account statement for a set of cusomters during a particular period.
                         we  use a script to generate the statement and convert it to pdf.This pdf is then stored in the application server and retrived using cg3y transaction.The transaction allows the statement to be generated for multiple customers and company code.
    the problem that we face is that the first customer account statement is generated properly the rest of the statements are not displayed properly.When we open the customer account statement we get the error 'Cannot extract the embedded font arial.Some characters might not be displayed properly'.All the Headings that we of the font BOLD ARIAL were not displayed.
    This error does not occur for the first pdf file generated.(say we have 3 customers  for the 1st customer pdf is proper however for the next two error'.
                         When I checked the application server I found that the first file has font subtype as Type1 and then rest of the files have font subtype as Truetype.
    This is working fine.I downloaded the file to pc using cg3y.the pdf looks fine.

    Hi,
    this can be related to the compression of the PDF file.
    You can turn off the FlateDecode compression again via report RSTXPDF3 as described in Note #843480. It is a little confusing. The option 'FLATE_COMPR_OFF' needs to be set to 'On' to turn off the FlateDecode compression.
    To set this please run as follows:
    se38 -> RSTXPDF3 -> enter 'FLATE_COMPR_OFF' in the 'Name' field -> Select 'Change Settings' radio button
    You will get a pop-up 'Do not use flat compression'.
    Select the 'on' button.
    After this check if the PDF is created correctly.
    regards,
    Aidan

  • Cannot extract the embeded font 'KDGXKF+TTF5BC9A0t00'.Some characters may not display or print correctly.

    I am currently using Adobe Reader version 9.1.3. When I open certain files, it displays the following message, "Cannot extract the embeded font 'KDGXKF+TTF5BC9A0t00'.Some characters may not display or print correctly". Some fonts are actually missing and will not display when printing. I have tried updating adobe but the problem still persists. Under file properites, the following font TTF5BC9A0t00 is recognised by Adobe as true type and custom encoding. Anyone has any suggestions for fix??

    BUT, does it say "embedded" or "embedded subset" next to the font name. If not, the font isn't included in the file and if you don't have it, it can't display or print it.
    The file creator will need to embed the fonts properly although "some" fonts don't allow embedding. This could be one of them.

    Hello Anubha,
    I am having a similar problem on my machine.  I was using Word 2008 and I created a PDF inside Word.
    I am opening the file on the system itself and I am running Windows 8.1.  I am using Version 11 of Reader.
    When the PDF I created (my resume) attempts to open, it says:  cannot find or create the file Times, Bold.  Some characters may not display or print correctly. 
    However, the entire Reader keeps freezing and will not allow me to open or test print the document.  Also, it is not displaying any of the Bold Times New Roman Print.  Can you please help?  Thanks.

  • Cannot extract the embedded font"...". Some characters may not display or print co

    Been trying to find a solution for this problem that has been rearing its ugly head for years now...
    Its definitely related to flattening transparencies, I believe, as it only appears after I click 'APPLY' under the apply to pdf section of the Flattener Preview Dialog.
    Im exporting the files as pdfs(interactive) from CS6 Indesign. I then have to flatten the transparencies for the digital addition requirements while leaving the fonts embedded. No problems until I try to Flatten the transparencies. Several files return the same error for a number of fonts.
    I've read that could be specific character issues. Font Doctor finds no issues with the fonts in question.
    Also getting a similar error regarding character widths.
    Others have reinstalled the fonts to no avail.
    Does anyone no of a workaround that doesnt require using alternate fonts?
    Ive dumped the font cache too. Didnt help.
    Thanks for any advice in advance,
    KMH

  • Cannot extract the embedded font - Adobe Reader XI

    Hello,
    I have an XPS file converted to a PDF with an embedded font inside, when I open the file, as I scroll to a page having '&' in the text (that's my case, but it's probably the same with any special character), a message box shows up saying "Cannot extract the embedded font 'HDGSLM+[my font]'. Some characters may not display or print correctly." and I can't see the special character in the page.
    I checked that my font was actually embedded in the PDF (File -> Properties -> Fonts) and seems to be ok, normal characters look fine and the application doesn't say anything until I scroll to the page with '&' inside. Also, other PDF readers show the document fine.
    I looked around the forum and saw that other people got the same problem and to them was a bug introduced in Adobe Reader 8.x, but nothing was confirmed by developers.
    Can you help me? Is it a bug? If yes, is Adobe working on it?
    Thank you.
    P.S.
    My Adobe Reader version is 11.0.4

    Reader can not create PDF files, so you should look for bugs in the software that was used to generate it.

    Install Foxit PDF reader, and then you can see the PDF document without any problem.
    I think your book was generated from Quartz.
    As I know there is no free solution for this problem. Updates of Abobe reader will not work.
    tips:
    You don't need Foxit reader as a default PDF reader program.

    According to this thread: http://choorucode.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/adobe-acrobat-embedded-font-error/
    the error relates to a font that is used in the document that is incompatible with the version of Adobe Reader being used (or is an outdated font). On the extreme side, the font itself could be corrupted on the PC of the person who created the PDF. So, you'd want to check:
    1) Is the font file on the PC corrupted (does this happen only for documents created by one user on one machine)?
    2) Is the font outdated/unsupported?
    3) Is the font incompatible with your version of Adobe Reader?

  • Acrobat 7: cannot extract the embedded font

    My problem is with reading some (not all) imported files with Acrobat 7 Professional. Certain files that will open with both Acrobat Reader 5 and Reader 8 will not open with Acrobat 7 Professional. I could understand much better if a file would open with 8 and not with 5 & 7, or with 5 but not 7 & 8. But in these particular cases it is only 7 that will not work. I am working on a PC with Windows XP.
    I get the message:
    "Cannot extract the embedded font xxxxxxxx. Some characters may not display or print correctly"
    The entire document then appears to be blank--through interestingly enough I can carry out other Acrobat 7 operations such as deleting specific pages in the pdf file.
    I suspect that there is a simple preferences setting that is wrong, but have been unable to find anything that helps.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Of course, I may not be in the right forum, and this is really a problem with the "Professional" package, not just the Reader.

    Hi Markus ,
    It is a problem with the pdf file being encoded as ascii by the email program when it is really binary. The way to get around the problem is to zip the file or use a different email program or change the encoding method if possible.
