    I have a book in InDesign made of several pages sets.
    In my case I use Montserrat & Montserrat Light. I export to PDF.

    I want to be able to edit the PDF, so I set "subset fonts" to 10%.

    Still, when I edit the resulting PDF, it seems not to have all the characters. When I would change some text some of the letters switch from Montserrat Light to Montserrat.

    See how certain ones are thicker?

    What is wrong?

    I usually just create a whole separate version where all the text is converted to outlines.

    oh i c.

    try a different font and see if that's just an issue with 1 font.
