As of version v2016R1, Qoppa’s jPDFPreflight will try and embed fonts when converting PDF documents to PDF/A whenever possible.

Font embedding is supported for:

  • Non-embedded Standard 14 PDF fonts with MacRomanEncoding, No Encoding or WinAnsiEncoding.
  • Non-embedded simple fonts with MacRomanEncoding or WinAnsiEncoding
  • Non-embedded composite fonts (often CJK) using a predefined CMap encoding (other than Identity-H/V)

Font embedding is NOT supported for:

  • Any font where a local TrueType font cannot be located
  • Simple or Standard 14 font with encoding “Differences” (shown in Acrobat as “Custom” encoding)
  • Composite font using an embedded, Identity-H or Identity-V encoding
