Hmmm. It says, all fonts are embedded, but one: "FoS0". ??? Never knew I 
used such a strange one.

The other thing is, I have my main font, Syntax, as Adobe Type 1 and as 
TrueType, and with different weights. They are all embedded. Maybe one 
of them went crazy?

Up to now, I've never had such problems with Scribus, even with older 
versions. But you never should say never...

Yes, outline. Maybe including all paths would avoid such things? But it 
will blow up the file, won't it.
