fonts not exporting to pdf properly
I am using Indesign 2024 on Mac Ventura. Adobe Premier Pro Garamond Cyrillic fonts are fine in InDesign but do not show properly when exported to PDFs. This is ridiculous if not inexcusable. It's an Open Source, Adobe font. Spend time fixing issues like this instead of destroying programs by deleting scroll bars.

If you're experiencing issues with fonts not exporting properly to PDF, it could be due to various reasons. Here are some common troubleshooting steps to address font export issues:
Ensure that the fonts used in your document are embedded in the PDF. Embedded fonts are included within the PDF file, allowing it to display correctly on different devices.
Make sure you have the proper licensing for the fonts you are using. Some fonts have restrictions on embedding, and if the licensing doesn't permit it, the fonts might not export correctly.
Use Standard Fonts:
If possible, try to use standard system fonts or widely available fonts. These fonts are more likely to be embedded properly in the PDF.
Convert Text to Outlines:
In some cases, converting text to outlines (vector shapes) can help avoid font-related issues. However, this may limit the ability to edit text in the PDF.
Check Font Format:
Ensure that the fonts you are using are in a standard format (TrueType or OpenType). Some PDF readers may have trouble with less common font formats.
Ensure that your software (the application you're using to create the document and export to PDF) is up-to-date. Updates often include bug fixes and improvements related to font handling.
Use preflight or font-checking tools available in your design software or third-party tools to identify and fix font-related issues before exporting to PDF.
Review PDF Settings:
Check the settings/options when exporting to PDF. Ensure that the export settings include embedding fonts and that any subset options are appropriate for your document.
Test with Different PDF Readers:
Test the exported PDF in different PDF readers to ensure that the font rendering issues are not specific to one reader.
If the issue persists, consider reaching out to the support channels of the software you are using for assistance. They may provide specific guidance for the software version you're using.
