When you distill you need to tell Distiller where the fonts reside. You can
have multiple locations for fonts, so all these locations need to be known
to Distiller.

Go to the menu select Distiller > Font Locations and add the folder path
where these fonts reside.

As to whiy some fonts are not in the System Folder, the more fonts that
reside in the System Folder the more are automatically loaded and stay
resident. To conserve memory resources keep only the system required fonts
there. You can keep all the printing fonts in a separate folder, including
subordinate folder within it, to organize all the fonts you have.

ATM will then allow you to activate or deactivate these fonts. Fonts in the
System Folder cannot be deactivated.

Your work sets in ATM are very powerful, and allow you to manage the font
families that you want to laod for each type of document or type of work
that you are doing.
