FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.10.1

Description of the issue

font embedding error report when using script step "save records as PDF"

Steps to reproduce the problem

Our company upgraded from Filemaker Pro 12 to Filemaker Pro 13 this month and we have a sudden (and for us big) problem when creating PDF from within Filemaker Pro 13. In FMP12 this worked, but in FMP13 it doesn't. When using a script that uses the script step "save records as PDF" an error message pops up, freely translated from Dutch in English:

"A font in this document can not be embedded without permission from the juridical owner etc. etc"

The font is "bmo5.ttf" and we bought a license for that font.

When printing the record from the print menu (Command P) and then use "save as PDF" it goes fine, but when using the script with the above mentioned script step it doesn't work in FMP13.

Please help!

thanks in advance, Boele

Filemaker 13.0.v4 / OS10.10.1
