Many conferences/journals need you to embed all the used fonts in your pdfs. You can check if your pdfs have embedded fonts in two ways:

  • Open it with your favorite pdf readers (tested with areader and evince), go to File->Properties->Fonts and check that everything is embedded
  • from the command line:
pdffonts my_pdf.pdf

PdfLatex should already embed the fonts in your documents, so if you don't have all the fonts embedded the fault is probably of some images. R has the bad habit of not embedding the fonts.

How to solve this:

pdftops  mypaper.pdf
ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress mypaper.ps
  • the correct solution would be to embed the fonts when producing the images.
    • examples coming up in the future
