Finalize the Document


If you want to submit your document to a conference or workshop, you might need to make sure, that all fonts are embedded. The check for this is much easier than fixing the issue by invoking the following command which lists all used fonts:

pdffonts [yourdocument.pdf]

If all fonts have a yes in the emb column, everything is fine. Otherwise, you might need to check your graph plotting tools like Matlab, R or gnuplot. Matlab should be used with EPS export and then convert the eps file to PDF “by hand” (pstopdf). R and gnuplot do have tikz devices which you definitely should consider to use for your plots. They are not only fixing the issue of the embedded fonts, but also make the graphs look much nicer as they are plotted as native LaTeX figures.
