font-face embeded fonts

It seems like embedding of custom fonts using font-face is working. After generating the PDF I can view it in Mac Preview and in Adobe Reader and the font seems to be embedded correctly.

But when I attempt to load the PDF into Photoshop to rasterize it I'm getting an error. Also Illustrator complains about the font not being installed on the local system.

Is there an option to render all font glyphs in vector form (i.e. create outlines) so the embedded font is not needed?

We are not able to convert glyphs to outlines, sorry.

One thing we could try is to embed full fonts instead of font subsets into the PDF and see if it helps. This option is not available in the API but if you send us your HTML layout we can generate the PDF with full fonts for you.

Do you need to be able to open the generated PDF in Photoshop/Illustrator or do you just need to rasterize it somehow?
