> I tried going into the junk.ps file and changing three occurrences of ZapfDingbats to ZapfDingbatsStd. Then I dropped the junk.ps on the Distiller and the error message went away, but when I opened the junk.pdf in Acrobat and checked the properties, there were no ZapfDingbats or ZapfDingbatsStd fonts listed. Don, is there something I can add to the source file above to test this idea? Maybe get ZapfDingbats to show up in Document Properties in Acrobat?

In a Terminal window, cd to a folder containing the .otf and run the command

otfinfo -i ZapfDingbatsStd.otf

and check the entry for PostScript name:

It won't help to change the file name---it's the Postscript name that matters.
