Recently I submitted a paper to a journal that could not "rad" my LaTex version due to some problem having to do with something about "Font 3 instead of Font 1" error. Is there a version of LaTex for my Mac that gets around this issue? I will thank you for your help on this.

I suspect that they're complaining of your having provided bitmap Type 3 fonts in your paper instead of Type 1.

There are utility programs which may be able to make the change in the .ps:

You could switch to MacTeX:


and then after generating your paper and distilling to a .pdf check the font usage in Adobe Acrobat to see if your document preamble and font calls will need to be adjusted.
