comment Why is Mathematica limiting the execution time of my calculation?
The fact that it's in a button is the entire question. None of your code matters. The question could be boiled down to "Why does Button["wait", Pause[20]; Print["done"]] not complete"? The answer to which is that you should add the option Method->"Queued" as an option to the Button.

comment How to avoid font substitution with Mathematica fonts?
@abwatson I should think they'd be able to use embedded fonts, yes. But I don't claim to understand publishers.

comment From notebook,how can I change variable value with in .m file dynamically?
I started to answer this, but I gave up because the bad assumptions are just too deeply ingrained in the question. DynamicModule is a localization construct. You can't access DynamicModule variables from outside of the code contained in DynamicModule. You can't take a Part of a DynamicModule and expect it to make any kind of sense. If you haven't, you should really read all of the documentation linked to from the Tutorials drop-down of the DynamicModule documentation in-product.

comment FontSubstitutions: how do they work?
@cormullion And yes, I can reproduce your problem with the Mac v9 version (I think it works elsewhere). It does look like FontSubstitutions is not working correctly on Mac.

comment FontSubstitutions: how do they work?
@cormullion You may find it easier to experiment with FontSubstitutions by using the selector syntax form for options like this: CurrentValue[$FrontEnd, {FontSubstitutions, "Bodoni"}] . You can also use assign values by putting the CurrentValue expression on the left-hand side of an equal sign.

comment Moving From Dynamic Module to Manipulate
@DavidCarraher Sorry, I had a typo/oversight in my original answer which made the resulting code not clear. I've edited and just included the entire code, along with a slight clarifying statement about the nature of the edit.

comment Strange ::usage behavior in v9
I don't know whether to expect that people will like this kind of answer or not. Maybe this answer was a mistake, or maybe it will be controversial. And I'm sensitive to doing anything which might be interpreted as karma-whoring. But egged on by rm in the comments above (the comments after the question), I decided to put it out there and see what happens. If you thought it was a waste of bytes, or an annoying list of excuses, or whatever, please say so.

comment Graphics exported from Mathematica 9 are very large because even standard fonts are embedded
@Szabolcs For me, it doesn't seem to be doing so in 9.0.1, although I can reproduce the 9.0.0 behavior. My example, on Mac, export of Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2Pi}, PlotLabel->Sin[x], BaseStyle -> {PrivateFontOptions -> {"OperatorSubstitution" -> False}}] was 3.5M in 9.0.0 and 6.3K in 9.0.1. I think this was just a bug, but I was unable to quickly find a bug report referencing this.

@Verbeia Mathematica doesn't (yet) support subsetting of fonts. I'm well aware of how useful this would be.
