This is reported here so often that I wonder if it might be better to
adjust the PDF export routine so it only includes fonts that are really
used in text. Assuming it is possible to do so, that is. Scribus should
not be creating PDFs with fonts that are not actually used. It
increases the size of the PDF, in addition to not being very

Still, it would be handy to have a "find font" utility of some sort.
