Certain Symbol Sets In Legend Do NOT print or export to .pdf
I am having trouble determining why certain symbol sets in my legend to not print or export to .pdf. They symbol does print where it is found on the map but not in the legend. Why is this? This seems to be an ArcGIS 10 issue. I can't find anything on this topic.
Mapping Center Answer:
There may be several reasons you are not getting the export that you want. You will have to work through your map settings to determine the root cause.
The most common place to check first is the settings you have for exporting to the .pdf. When your are working with your map document and go to File>Export Map, then under the Options, click on Format Tab to verify that the Embed All Documents Fonts checkbox is checked. If possible, limit the exported fields to one layer per map.
The second most common reason is that the fonts that were used in character marker symbols are missing or corrupt. In either case they will fail to embed and print. Check the properties of your symbol and determine what type of symbol it is. This will help in tracking the problem and it may be that you need to reinstall the font.
