comment TexStudio pdf viewer do not show same content as actual PDF. Font issue?
@cfr, thanks for the info. But how does one find if the pdf file (in this example, it will be the a.pdf file, the file I am including as image) has non-embedded fonts in it? The page I am including came from a pdf file send to use from the instructor. I am just including one page from that file, after I cropped it using pdfcrop. This is nightmare if one has to also make sure fonts are supposed to be inside pdf file or not. I assumed this is all taken care of when the pdf files are created.

comment On pdfTeX error (font expansion): auto expansion is only possible with scalable fonts, microtype package
@JosephWright thanks. I use MikTeX package manager, and yes, it was not installed. Installed cm-super and now the error went away. I think Miktex should installed cm-super by default just like TL in this case.

@cfr when omitting microtype but still use T1, and also load lmodern, it works as mentioned above. As far what it uses, I will now post the console output for this case as well so you can see. I am not really familiar with fonts and what to look for. May be you can spot now the issue.

Ok, I will put the full output on the console at the end of my question in this case now.

Thanks. How does one check if cm-super is there/used or not? I did full installation of MikTex on windows. Also did full update about 2 months ago or so. I know nothing about cm-super or where to look for it. But will google it now.

comment dvisvgm not working when called by htlatex
I would forget about using tex4ht.env. I use svg images with tex4ht. But generate them directly using pdf2svg during the build process. Example how to do this is here Detailed description of my tex4ht setup this is what I do now and it works very well for me.

comment FancyVerb error when % at end, when using \DefineVerbatimEnvironment
@barbarabeeton if the Latex document in SW is saved as what is called Portable Latex, then tcilatex is not used. tcilatex is only used when one saves the document as SW/SWP/SN. I never do this. I always choose Portable Latex.

comment FancyVerb error when % at end, when using \DefineVerbatimEnvironment
@barbarabeeton yes, this fix is specific for SW. in SW it has what it calls a TexField. It is used to allow one to enter raw latex in the document itself. But SW was adding % to the end of the line, even though the raw Latex was inside a TexField. Adding one white space, told SW not to add % any more to end of line, when it saves the document as Latex file. So I am able to compile it using TexLive. This all applies to SW 5.5. They have a new major version called 6.0 now, released few months ago, which I do not use. Version 6 is based on XML.

comment Suggestions Request / App for drawing that code generate a tikz code
Why does it have to generate tikz code? I currently use IPE. You can insert Latex code in the drawing, then export it to pdf. It works very well, and now I use it for all my diagrams. google IPE latex and you'll find it. It is easy to use.

Is the pdf file is currently open when you try to compile a new pdf file?

comment \includegraphics{<pdf image>} is dropping items (comments) from the <pdf image> file. Can pdfTeX support inclusion of PDF 1.6?
@JohnKormylo thanks. I ended up doing screen shot of the problem, saving to png using paint.exe on windows, then used PDF pro to convert the png to pdf file. Now the 's' shows in there in the pdf saved since it was screen shot.

Thanks for both answers. I learned from them.

@cfr I am sure the 's' was added by the instructor later on. I know it does not look the same as the other fonts. But since it is "inside" the pdf file, I assumed it will show up in Latex. I thought whatever shows up on the screen when looking at the pdf file, will also show up when including the pdf file in Latex as graphics. I'll just take screen shot for now and save to png and use png for this one problem. Screen shot always works ;)

@JohnKormylo This is only part of the larger problem question. Yes, I can type the question by hand. But I have many pdf files with comments like this in them added to the pdf file, so if there is a way to include comments like these it will be better in the long term.

The image file is a cropped problem from the original file the teacher emailed us. But the same problem shows up in the original file as well. So me cropping the problem out is not related. Please see the original file here I just uploaded. link. I normally take out each problem from the pdf file (using the PDF pro program I have on windows that can crop regions of pdf pages) and put it on its own file so I can include it in the right location in my latex. I do not think the problem is due to cropping.

@IanThompson yes, the 's' was added by the instructor. But I need it to show up when I include the pdf. Can includegraphics include comments in pdf file also? I'll update the title to mention this. I was not sure what the problem is, and still not sure.

@cfr fixed link. It was question about using PDF image file version 1.6 in Miktex.

thanks again for the hint. But for some reason, it is still missing that letter. Here is what I tried \pdfminorversion=6 \documentclass[11pt]{article}% \usepackage{graphicx}% \listfiles \begin{document} \includegraphics[]{p} \end{document} and tried '7'. No change. I have the pdf image file in the link I posted if you like to try yourself. Also tried \pdfminorversion=6 \pdfinclusioncopyfonts=1 \documentclass[11pt]{article}% \usepackage{graphicx}% \listfiles \begin{document} \includegraphics[]{p} \end{document} and no change. letter still missing.

@cfr I tried. but it is still missing. Here is example: \pdfminorversion=7 \pdfinclusioncopyfonts=1 \documentclass[11pt]{article}% \usepackage{graphicx}% \listfiles \begin{document} \includegraphics[]{p} \end{document}, I also tried just this \pdfminorversion=7 \documentclass[11pt]{article}% \usepackage{graphicx}% \listfiles \begin{document} \includegraphics[]{p} \end{document} no change. Letter is missing.
