    Default X Box Substituted for Text Characters when PDFd

    Illustrator CS
    Indesign CS
    Acrobat Prof 6.0

    I have several illustrations containing text (Myriad Pro). When placed into Indesign (CS) and the doent is PDFd (6.0.05), a few characters are substituted with a crossed out box. 4,7, and x's in this particular doent. The illustration looks good when re opened, the Indesign looks good but PDF product has the problem.

    Here's what I have tried:

    1. PDFd illust. OK
    2. Re saved illustration and deleted/re-placed illustrations. No Go when PDFd
    3. Saved as eps file and placed in Indesign and PDFd. OK on all
    4. Deleted EPS and re-placed with original AI files. OK
    5. I've checked to make sure Acrobat was looking for the font in the right place.

    #4 is the puzzler.

    I use Myriad Pro everywhere in Illy and Indesign.

    I have another doent that a 9 was substituted for a 2 in several places when Indesign doent was PDFd. Those illustrations (number ballons) are EMFs. (I had those already created when I switched to Adobe products).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Additional significant information:
    The files are all stored on a server, with the Illy graphics linked in Indesign. I am going to do a test with the files all stored on my hard drive to see if the situation improves.

    I replace a illustration stored on the network with one save on my hard drive and rePDFd. Same problem with a text character replaced with an x-box. It looks like an Acrobat problem???

    I am basically talking to my self but anyway...

    I still don't know why but exporting to pdf instead of printing to pdf results in a good output.

    You're sittin' on a goldmine there, Greg. Does it do Playstations, too?
