WRI Tech Support sent me an answer to the font problem.  Copying the
Type 1 (not True Type) fonts made the error go away:

Hello Dr. Treat,

A workaround for the font-related issue that you encountered, is to
copies of the Mathematica Type 1 fonts from

C:\Program Files\Wolfram


C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Resource\Font

The same command worked for me, insofar as creating the plot is

I did get an error message opening the file, saying that Adobe Acrobat
was "Unable to find or create the font 'Mathematica1Mono-Bold'.  Some
characters may not display or print correctly."  The plot looks fine,

Subject: [mg36780] [mg36746] Exporting Cells to PDF

I've been using Mathematica 4.1 on Win98 as a word processor for
math-related documents, but often people that need to see the documents
don't have Mathematica, and for whatever reason on my computer the HTML
saves don't work at all. I'd like to export to PDF format. I can export
images to PDF format no problem using, for example
Export["c:\docs\plot3.pdf", Plot[Sin[x],{x,-2Pi,2Pi}]],
and I can export cells correctly to GIF, JPEG, and WMF formats (probably
more, those are the only ones I tested) using, for example
Export["c:\docs\cell4.gif", Cell[ <<...(copied cell data from Edit->Copy
As->Cell Expression)...>> ]]
When I change the filename to a .PDF and evaluate the cell, the program
displays 'Running...' for a second and gives the 'Out[n] =
' message as if a file was created, but no file is created anywhere with
name that I could find with Start->Find->[All files and folders created
the previous day].
Is there a limitation to PDF exporting I don't know about? Do I need to
upgrade to 4.2? Am I doing something wrong with the Export[] command? Do
need a faster computer? A patch? Something else?
Thanks in advance.
