# [pdftex] Embedding fonts when using \includegraphics*

Thu Sep 3 13:33:16 CEST 2009

Hello,

I've just run across a strange problem with pdflatex. When including
PDF files that have fonts embedded in them, using
\includegraphics*{...}
will cause these fonts not to be embedded in the final output, while
\includegraphics{...}
is working as expected. I tested this using
pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
and
pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (MiKTeX 2.8)

Here's a minimal example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics*{test.pdf}
\end{document}

where test.pdf contains an embedded font.
Is this intentional behaviour? I could not find any mention of this
anywhere.
