TrueType fonts converted to Type 3 in .ps file

Description of problem:
In OpenOffice.org 2.02, the only way I seem to be able to print a file to .ps is
by using the "Generic Printer" option. Unfortunately, any TT fonts get converted
to Type 3, and display poorly in some PDF viewers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In OO.org, type "Test" using Bitstream Vera Sans font.
2. Print using the Generic Printer option and location set to file. Save as
3. Convert to pdf using pdf2ps output.ps.
Resulting file displays poorly in XPDF. Looking at "Document Properties"' in
Evince shows that fonts are converted to Type 3.
Fonts should be converted to Type 1, or otherwise display nicely.
What do you want to do, create a PDF ? In which case use export->as PDF which
creates the best quality PDF output. I don't see any Type3 output from that route.
That's true, but PDF files generated from OO.org are not as consistently
supported as those generated from a PS file using GhostScript. For example:
add a line of
after the line of
That should do it, will fix for next respin
That works, thanks!
