I have written a thesis, printing on the home-printer works fine, but for publishing, there are some problems concerning the embedding and fonttypes: I am using Miktex via TeXnic Center on Windows 7.

My current problem: I had a non-scaleable font first, now the normal text seems to be ok, but for formulas it doens't work. Here is a minimal example:




aöüßLorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua. 

c = \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} 


If I run this code, the formula enviroment is not a vector-font, therefore I can see the grid when I zoom in using a pdf reader. Analyzing it with pdffonts gives me:

name                                 type              emb sub uni object ID
------------------------------------ ----------------- --- --- --- ---------
ZNESZZ+CMSSBX10                      Type 1            yes yes no       4  0
IKIYOW+CMSS12                        Type 1            yes yes no       5  0
[none]                               Type 3            yes no  no       6  0
[none]                               Type 3            yes no  no       7  0
[none]                               Type 3            yes no  no       8  0
[none]                               Type 3            yes no  no       9  0

For my thesis it is even more complicated. hfbright and cm-super are installed. If I remove the \usepackage{cmbright}, text and formulas are ok.

I would really appreciate your help, I am quite desparate by now...

    You probably have a faulty installation of the CM-Super fonts. Try the method in tex.stackexchange.com/a/205641/4427 – egreg Jan 7 '15 at 13:23
  • that is exactly what I thought and reinstalled cm-super. Now it works for the minimal example :) (I had to re-install as user instead of admin..no idea why). Still there are problems with not-embedded fonts in my document. Should I discuss this here or open a new post (after some trial and error on my side first)? – user49017 Jan 7 '15 at 13:32
  • Don't use the package ae. Not doing so won't solve the problem, but it is deprecated. What does loading lmodern do given that you then load cmbright? – cfr Jan 8 '15 at 2:25
  • Use LuaTeX or XeTeX, switch to unicode and use unicode-math. – Martin Schröder Jan 8 '15 at 12:35
