Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the list and have been using Scribus for a little while.  I am
creating a document using FF Scala Pro.  This is an open type font.  When I
export this file to PDF FF Scala Pro is only available to outline instead of
embed.  This results in the text not being selectedable in the PDF and not
rendering as well.  Is there any way around this?

Also, I created the same document in InDesign as well as Scribus.  InDesign
export a 44KB PDF and Scribus export a 201KB PDF.  I am guessing that InDesign
is doing something special to only embed part of the fonts I am using, but I'm
not sure.  Can any explain what is going on here?

Thanks for the help,
