    I'm playing with 2015Q1 and export a simple text document with PDF/A-3b compliance level.

    When I check the resulting pdf file, the validation service states:

    Validating file "Testpdf.pdf" for conformance level pdfa-3b
      The font Helvetica must be embedded.
      The document does not conform to the requested standard.
    The document contains fonts without embedded font programs or encoding information (CMAPs).Done.

    How can I specify, that a standard font should be embedded?

    Hi Mike,

    At this point embedding the standard 14 fonts in a document is not supported, so producing a PDF/A compliant document that uses one of them is not possible. We are looking into the possibility to include this functionality and you can track its status on the public portal here.

    Let me know if you have additional questions regarding this.
