Font Encoding in a Postscript Document

Postby Linguist » Tue Nov 26, 2013 3:30 am


This seems like it should be a pretty common problem, so I'm not sure what I'm missing.

When I compile a document with the fontenc package (T1 option) to postscript, the text doesn't display.

Actually, the text does display if I also have mathptmx loaded. Likewise, if I have tipa loaded, any text specified as IPA (\textipa) will display correctly.
  1. %LaTeX => (DVI =>) PS => PDF
  2. \documentclass{minimal}
  3. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  4. \usepackage{lipsum}
  6. \begin{document}
  7. \lipsum
  8. \end{document}

Note, that if I compile to DVI the text shows up. Likewise, this isn't a problem in the conversion of PS to PDF; when I view the PS document directly, there's no text. I'm using MiKTeX 2.9.

Thanks for any insights on what's going on here.
