Attached file, when converted to PS3 with pdftops, cannot be processed by Ricoh printers that seemingly use Adobe Distiller embedded engine to parse it.
When resulting PostScript file is opened with Adobe Distiller XI for Windows, the following error message appears:
Adobe PostScript software version: 3018.101 CID support library initialization completed. Adobe PDF Settings: C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings\Standard.joboptions %%[ Warning: Times-BoldItalic not found, using Font Substitution.

The original PDF is attached. The resulting PS was made with poppler 0.24.1, command line pdftops -r 300 -level3 -origpagesizes

What can be done to make the output more compatible with Adobe products?
