my client noticed a bug when printing things set in the font I made. It’s a highly complex font with a huge number of paths, as it has a vectorized grunge effect (stamp look). The problem seems to occur mostly when printing from a PDF X3 file.
It often works completely fine (it has already worked with offset printing with embedded font in the PDF), even on common laser printers, but it just as often doesn’t work. It also seems to occur with any character, not just specific ones. The picture shows what happens when the bug occurs. Characters also mostly seem to “morph” into this specific triangular shape.
Should I reduce the complexity of the font? Could the problem be solved through a certain way of PDF writing of print files?
I also added a zipped .otf file to this thread.
I can only imagine the heavy “path load” as the root of the problem. I might be wrong though.
