#147 embed symbol font


After hours of searching the internet, I hope to get a solution in this forum.

The problem is the following:
I prepared some graphs for a publication with gnuplot. The journal wants fonts empeded in the eps graphs.

So far I found out how to embed the arial font with fontfile "arial.pfa".
Unfortunately, the arial font does not seem to be the only font I used in the graphs.
I expect that the greek symbols I used, are the reason, why the journal does not accept my graphs.

Parts of my gnuplot file look as the following:
>>> set terminal postscript enhanced eps font 'Arial,18' fontfile 'arial.pfa' size 8.5cm,8.5cm
>>> ...
>>> set label 3 "H_{/Symbol a}" at first 680, first 0.6 left offset character 0.5,0

Is there a way of finding out which fonts gnuplot used for plotting the graphs?

Locating the fonts will be done with:
>>> show fontpath
if I got it right.

Thanks in advance for your help,

CU Peter
