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.
