Ive been using Photoshop Droplets to automate work for years and was pleasantly surprised to find similar functionality in Acrobat.
PDF Fixups include most of the tools I typically use in Preflight. In my previous article titled Missing Fonts in PDFs Embedded/Linked within an InDesign Document, I discussed how use the Embed missing fonts Fixup. Ill use this for my example droplet.
Preflight: Droplet Setup dialog offers four groups of settings. Ill expand on these in a future article. For our example, leave all of the settings as is. If you did not select “Embed missing fonts” in the previous step, select it from the dropdown. Select save and place the droplet on your desktop.
Close your document and attempt to place the PDF into an InDesign document. With all fonts embedded, it will no longer trigger InDesign Preflight’s missing font warning.
