    I'm having the same "ERROR: invalidfont" promblem on Mac OS Lion 10.7.1.  I started having the problem in 10.6.7 but didn't see the info on the Font update until now.

     

    What do I do now?  is there any value in installing the 10.6.7 Font Update if I'm running 10.7.1? I bet that sounds like a stupid question but I really don't know.

     

    The PDF document that this problem appears in is a key document in my industry. Boy, I'm I regretting upgrading to Lion.

    Since that update is for Snow Leopard, it won't even show up as an item you could install in Software Update. Even if you were to manually download that update, it wouldn't install in Lion.

    I started having the problem in 10.6.7 but didn't see the info on the Font update until now.

    Any PDF files you created in Snow Leopard 10.6.7 before applying the font fix patch will be damaged. That is, the PDF file itself is damaged and needs to be recreated. The patch will not make damaged PDF files display correctly.

    Thanks Kurt.

     

    If I recreate the file will it print properly in Lion?

    It should.

    You were right.  I've re-created the file and it now prints.

     

    I still have the other problem with these PDF files in which the lines of text overlap like they're inadequately spaced. That's part of another discussion in the forum.  I hope Apple comes up with a fix.

     

    Thanks.
