Fonts in graph (graph theory) pictures are Type 3???
I am writing my thesis. One requirement is I can not have any Type 3 fonts. My document does have Type 3 fonts (Go to File, Properties, then the Font tab in Adobe Reader to check) and I believe it is caused by the graphs I have drawn with Sage, which I save as PDFs and then include with \includegraphics in LaTeX. For example:
g=graphs.CycleGraph(5) g.relabel(lambda i: i+1) graph_plot = g.plot(talk=True) graph_plot.save('5cycle.pdf')
It is listed as "BitstreamVeraSans-Roman". I am using the thesis LaTeX template provided by my university, and I have not added any statements that tell it to use a certain font anywhere, so I don't think it's possible that the Type 3 font is anywhere in my text, unless the person who made the template is a jerk.
That left me to guess it is in my pictures. I googled "bistream verasans roman sage" and came across this question which suggests it is possible. I also deleted out 70% of my thesis, starting from the spot where the first figure appears, so that I deleted out all figures created as PDFs in Sage. And, now there are no Type 3 fonts.
Is it possible to change the font used? I guess it is the font used in labeling the vertices of the graphs??? Or, is it possible to explain why these fonts were used so I can try to explain why these fonts will not cause a problem? The reason we can not use Type 3 fonts is because this website says they cause problems, essentially that Type 1 fonts appear nicer when you are reading it on the screen.
