hi mike,

>   As John indicated, converting all the glyphs into vectors would result in a massive PDF for documents with lots of text, which is what my documents are - two columns of text on each page with several inset images also including overlaid text.  Unless there's a very compelling reason to outline for printing, I'm partial to embedding.

afaik scribus 1.4 never outlines your fonts but embeds them or subset 
them (the second one being called "outline" for historical reasons".

have fun
