Downloading fonts as bitmaps provides more detail, however it creates large
file sizes. This is best suited for print jobs with custom fonts, very small fonts
(point size 1-4), or Asian fonts.

Substitute with device fonts

Font substitution is the process of using one font in place of another when
the intended font is unavailable to a printing system. Font substitution may
be critical for output of documents to printing systems that are not well
supported by a large font inventory. Standard PostScript fonts are available
for substitution.

Note: GDI compatible mode does not support Substitute with device

Disable device fonts

In some cases, the printing system substitutes fonts even if you send the
TrueType fonts as outline fonts or bitmap images. Select Disable device
to prevent substitution of device fonts for TrueType fonts.

This option also improves portability of printable data. If cleared, device fonts
may not match when sent to a different printing system.

Some Adobe applications have device font limitations. To overcome these
limitations, select Disable device fonts. Device fonts are normally visible in
the application font lists as printer icons next to the font name, unless there
are equivalent system fonts, in which case the “TT” TrueType icon remains.
