I have a collection of Illustrator files which get collected into a single PDF. Having attempted to remove all uses of a specific font throughout, I find that the font is still being embedded. How can I find which pages and where on the page that font is used?
The "pdffonts.exe" commandline utility can indicate which fonts are used on which page. It's part of the .zip available here: ftp://ftp.foolabs.com/pub/xpdf/xpdf-3.02pl4-win32.zip and works without "installation".
Make yourself familiar with its use by opening a cmd.exe window and type:
If you want to see which fonts are used on page 23 of one.pdf, use this command:
If you want to see the fonts for page range 4-11 of two.pdf, use this command:
