    Yeah but you have never worked with them before. Have you been to their shop? Do you know if they do large format in house? Right off the bat if they don't do it in house you can expect it to take longer....

    Most of my rant has to do with the fact that these guys were sending up to 5 or 7 emails a day trolling for business that when I finally have a job for them they all of a sudden I have all this BS thrown...

    When did you approve the quote? Was it when you sent the artwork? 5 days isn't enough if they didn't know in advance that you selected them for the job because:

    Maybe they don't stock coroplast,...

    You have a PDF. You want to work with this PDF in illustrator, so you open it (in illustrator). The problem is that the PDF had text in a font you don't have installed. So you can't see the piece properly

    But after all, when you open the file as a PDF, you SEE the text in the proper font it was supposed to. So the information is in fact in the PDF.


    The question is: Can the font be converted to path and then be opened nicely in illustrator?


    Of course I can make a snapshot of the font and re-trace it by hand... but that's not the idea, as the information is already in the PDF.

    If you have the full version of Acrobat do a save as, choose eps, click the "options" button and select "transparency flattening" ... then chekct he box that says "convert all text to outlines". If you open the .eps in Illustrator it should work, but it gave me the font warning even though it had been converted.

    See if that works.

        When you open it in illy does it tell you what font is missing? As far as outlining fonts, never done it AcroPro, I embed them, but you need the font to do that. Maybe you can find a font that's similar and replace it.
