    The manual doesn't use any particularly non standard fonts and your PDF reader should be able to display it. What reader are you using, and what operating system are you on?

    excuse me,

    Adobe Reader X (10.1.3)
    Win XP SP 3
    The above text is the error message, so it will not be accepted and the font remains cryptic

    In fact, ArtRage 3 Manual PDF does contain Helvetica fonts, which are not present on computers with MS-Windows operating systems. However if Windows works flawless, Adobe Reader X replaces Helvetica fonts automatically with the Arial fonts, which are the Microsoft version of Helvetica, without user's input is required. If this is not the case on your computer, it may indicate problems with Windows not being able to register Arial fonts properly.
    It wouldn't also do any harm to check te Installation of Adobe reader as well.
    This is the reason, why nobody else has noticed any problems with the ArtRage 3 Manual for Windows.

    As the side note:

    When desktop and computerized publishing began to take off, Helvetica went along for the ride, as the early Adobe Postscript format included it as one of the original four fonts (along with Times, Courier, and Symbol).

    When Microsoft and Apple teamed up to try and integrate font faces into their operating systems, they took similar but slightly different paths. Microsoft balked at paying the Linotype Corporation the licensing fees for Helvetica, and made its own similar version which became known as "Arial." Apple paid the license and Helvetica became one of the most commonly-used font used in the professional desktop publishing world (created primarily on Mac computers). Being able to tell the difference between the fonts is a point of pride for many designers.

    Arial replacement for the internal Helvetica font should be automatic and the Adobe reader I'm using on Windows seems to be able to do that without a problem. Reinstallation of the reader may solve the problem.

    Thank you for explaining post ....
    Now I've become a little smarter,
    meanwhile, the problem has solved itself (as explained: Adobe has responded)
    for maintenance already provides the computers Translation
