I have been using Scribus continuously for a little more than a month
now and have been nothing but highly impressed by its performance.This
dicussion reminded me of something I was thinking about the other day. I
usually check the box "Embed Fonts" to make it easier for others to view
the pdf I generate with Scribus. What are the situations in which I can
get away with not checking the box to embed fonts?

I would assume that if you are using some special fonts, embedding them
would be necessary. But that is the case, when doesn't Scribus remember
my option of embedding the fonts? I have to make sure that I check it
everytime I want to make a pdf (non PDF/X-3) which does become a little
annoying if you are generating the pdf 4-5times in half an hour!
