The layout of the attached PDF file is incorrect after import, regardless whether importing as "editable" or "accurate". Most notably, some of the line weights are too heavy and the text leading is wrong and some text lines overwrite one another. I think this particular problem may be because PgS does not use the embedded fonts but replacements I must choose on import. I have tried this with Windows PgSPro 22.214.171.124 (my "work" version) and Amiga68K 126.96.36.199, the results were identical.

The filesize of the attached PDF looks awfully small for a file with 3 embedded fonts. But I have a feeling I read somewhere it is possible to embed only the characters used in the document of each font, so the embedded fonts contain an incomplete set of glyphs.
If this is the case, I'm not sure how best to go about this. Clearly it is better to use the original font glyphs, but is it a good idea to "install" such fonts for PgS?
Perhaps there could be a "special" directory for imported but incomplete fonts? That don't normally appear in the fontlist but are used if any loaded PgS document refers to them?
