# [Mac OS X TeX] TeXShop, fonts, and Illustrator

2 messages
 I like to use Illustrator for creating graphics for inclusion into LaTeX documents. Back in the old days of Classic, I would have a Textures file that I used to create labels for figures. I would save the typeset labels page as an eps file, import it into Illustrator, and then put them on the figure. I just tried creating some figure labels in TeXShop and when I open the resulting pdf file in Illustrator, some of the characters are missing. For example, I just tried creating some figure labels with $A$, $B$, $O$, and $\theta$ everything showed up except the $\theta$. Interestingly, if I open the pdf file in Acrobat Reader 5.0, I can see everything, including the $\theta$. Does anyone know what is going on here? If so, do you know how to fix it? I love LaTeX, but I hate all the problems associated with fonts. :-) Thank you, --     Gary L.

 This sounds very much like problems from long ago versions of Textures/Illustrator - which is why I wrote font-fixer.  When I get some time, I will have a look (I don't know PDF nearly as well as postscript, but who knows...).  Would you like to send a minimal PDF example < 50 k.
