Check your paper for IEEE compliance through the IEEE PDF eXpress site


I found that the easiest way to make your pdf compliant with the IEEE requirements is to just print your pdf to another pdf! This works like a charm. I had a few problems, which are enumerated in the table below. I tried removing the urls, I even tried these hacks: http://mohamednabeel.blogspot.com/2009/10/fixing-font-not-embedded-issue-to-pass.html. However, the only thing that you have to do is to grab the document generated by latex, go to File->Print...->Print to file (choose another location/name) and voila, it works! :)
