File Formatting Tips
The following tips can help with creating compliant PDF files.
EPS File Font Embedding
Two methods are given below to embed fonts within an EPS file. The first converts a single file, the second, a directory of EPS files.
> eps2eps -dEmbedAllFonts=true figure_old.eps figure_new.eps
To convert a directory of EPS files, open a shell, change to the directory containing EPS files, type the following (without line breaks)
> for I in `ls *eps`; do
mv $I $I.OLD;
eps2eps -dEmbedAllFonts=true $I.OLD $I;
DVI to PDF conversion
Use the commands below to convert a DVI file to a compliant PDF. Note: You may have to use ps2pdf14 instead of ps2pdf.
> dvips -Pdownload35 -G0 -tletter -o paper.ps paper.dvi
> ps2pdf -dEmbedAllFonts=true paper.ps paper.pdf
