I'm trying to open a .pdf in CS2 and fonts like Trajan Bold are substituted when not in my font directory.  Is it possible to extract fonts that are "included" in a pdf?

It is possible, but the times I have tried it it has been timely and not worth the effort. Sometimes you can extract them, sometimes you cannot. If you can, you will not get the full font. Usually the document embeds only the fonts used in the document, not the full font set It's just easier to get the font and install it temporarily with a font manager for the time you need it to edit the document.

If you don't have to edit the file you can place the file. and then flatten transparency and create text to outline.

Don't know if that helps or not
