I've noticed that gs-9.26 cannot embed CID fonts
for the extractpdfmark method.

In the method, we defined fonts in PostScript, and use it in PDF.
gs-9.26 cannot define the fonts for PDF in PostScript.

The big problem is that the possible workaround ( use of 'gs -I<path> ...' ) is 
broken too.

Since a bit more than an hourĀ  ghostscript 9.28 has been fixed (commits 
e005c87e09f6 and eec855c9baea in ghostpdl master).

Two workarounds are possible:

1: put the cid fonts in a CIDFont directory and use the -I command line argument

2: define CID fonts in a postscript file and feed that to ghostscript. As an 
example I give the necessary code for defining a non-standard cid version of 

   /lilypond-datadir where { pop } { userdict /lilypond-datadir 
(/home/knut/sources/lilybuilt/share/lilypond/2.21.0) put } ifelse

   lilypond-datadir (/fonts/otf/emmentaler-brace.cid) concatstrings (r) file 
   /Emmentaler-Brace /CIDFont findresource
   << exch {} forall /Path lilypond-datadir (/fonts/otf/emmentaler-brace.cid) 
concatstrings >>
   /Emmentaler-Brace exch /CIDFont defineresource pop
   /Emmentaler-BraceĀ  /Identity-H [ /Emmentaler-Brace ] composefontĀ  pop
