Embedding fonts for IEEE

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.

  1. convert to ps: pdftops ICRA05.pdf
  2. convert back to pdf using prepress settings: ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress ICRA05.ps
  3. check new ICRA05.pdf for horrendous formatting errors due to double conversion.

  1. Conversion to ps and back is not a good solution if you want to preserve hyperlinks.
    If you are using xfig for creating your figures, you can solve the problem by setting the “special”-flag for all text.
    The text then is included as a pstex_t file so that pdflatex can allocate the fonts for it.

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
