comment Inkscape to PDF Font issue when saving/Exporting to PDF
Yes, thanks for that. Again, I ended up using Scribus for the job which worked superb, so I will use Scribus for basic DTP now. Previously I had used M$ Coreldraw for previous jobs, but Inkscape gave above errors. I suggest you also checkout Scribus for simple DTP. (but it can't really beat Quark on a Mac!).

No, those settings were already set and made no difference in the end result I'm afraid, but thanks for your advice. I'll try some other fonts/settings. Failing that, I'll use Scribus for now as that appears to output the PDF correctly. I'd still like some relevant advice from readers mind.

comment Inkscape to PDF Font issue when saving/Exporting to PDF
I read this post (askubuntu.com/questions/211633/…) and loaded Scribus v1.4.4; then imported the Inkscape.SVG, when I exported out of Scribus as .PDF, it exported correctly as I wanted it to look like.

comment Inkscape to PDF Font issue when saving/Exporting to PDF
I tried all: "export as", "Save as" and "print" (as PDF file). The said font does not convert well in the document. I'll try another copy with an standard alt font, the Futura BdCn BT is my favourite font (-:

No I just tried that, that's not a suitable option.

I have GIMP but never thought of that really, I'll give it a shot. Would still like to fix the Inkscape issue though. Cheers.

comment How to remove Shutdown Screen Text on closedown (14.04) - NVidia Geforce card
Not at startup (although I get an old style (Ubuntu 14.04') text line. Only at shutting down, the text says things like 'mysql server stopping', 'clam shutting' etc (or of similar wording) and runs left to right across the whole of the screen working downwards in the colours of white and orange.

comment Which programs can I use to edit PDF files?
I found PDF Mod to work great on some OneNote scans I had from M$ days, PDF Mod rotated them great so this prog worth looking at.
