-Ppdf) to acquire an appropriate copy of the font; these copies are then patched back into the original file. If your source file is older than pkfix can deal with, there’s still a modicum of hope: pkfix-helper examines the bitmap fonts in a document, compares them with the metric (
.tfm) fonts on your system and comes to a view of which font might be which. The program reports on “poor” matches, and there are options for confirming, or replacing, its guesses. The technique (which sounds implausible) is successful enough to be worth a try. A further option is Frank Siegert’s (shareware) PStill, which is capable of processing the PostScript it is distilling, and one option is to replace bitmap fonts in the file with Type 1 versions.
