Not directly ... There are 'hard' commands (or programmes) installed,  
and there are scripts like simpdftex that use a whole bunch of  
(external) programmes to accomplish the job. You just tell TeXShop to  
either use its right or its left hand, so to speak.

There is only room for one 'command' -- one that does the TeX job and  
another one that does the LaTeX job.

In that case you can make the simpdftex script to include via the  
dvips step the whole font into the PS output, which is then converted  
into PDF:

	simpdftex latex --maxpfb --dvipsopts -j0

and for tex accordingly. This will pass to dvips the extra option '- 
j0' which turns off the optimal behaviour of partially embedding a  
PostScript font (just the glyphs actually used), so they will be  
included completely.

OTOH, there are Utopia and Fourier fonts available in Mac formats to  
install them in Mac OS. Can it be that Adobe Illustrator expects them  
as installed items?
