IEEE requires that your PDF files embed all fonts. Earlier, I told you how to get pdflatex LaTeX to embed all its fonts, but what if you are including figures that have hanging fonts and you are getting desperate? Luke Fletcher gives us the solution.
- convert to ps: pdftops ICRA05.pdf
- convert back to pdf using prepress settings: ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress ICRA05.ps
- check new ICRA05.pdf for horrendous formatting errors due to double conversion.
