TIP/SOLUTION: RotatedFrames+FM+ATM+FontAutoActivation+PS/PDFfiles


(FM 556, Win95, ATM Deluxe 4.0, AdobePSDriver 4.2.6, Distiller 3.02,
Acrobat Exchange 3.01)

We ran into an interesting problem and I think it will be useful to post
our (very simple) solution.

PROBLEM: Document contains some anchored text frames that contain text
rotated 90 degrees (thus vertical).  Printed document to PS file and
distill to PDF.  YES I DID IT CORRECTLY!  :)   The PDF file (and also
printed PS files that were printed to PS using the ppds appropriate for
said printers) were missing the vertical (rotated) text.

The (fixable by us) CAUSE is that the particular font that was used for
the rotated text was not "activated" all the time in ATM.  FM DID
successfully auto-activate the font when FM started.  However, some
other element of the process (the PS driver??) was apparently not
activating or finding the font.

SOLUTION: Close relevant applications.  Open ATM, activate said font. 
Restart relevant applications, recreate PS file, distill again,
everything is now wonderful.

Happy Holidays.
