You can fix it in tcl/pd_menucommands.tcl by either trying the -fontmap option or changing the find-replace from "DejaVuSansMono" to "MenloRegular"

https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/blob/master/tcl/pd_menucommands.tcl#L37 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/blob/master/tcl/pd_menucommands.tcl#L37>

Right-click on the Pd-###.app and choose "Show package contents." The tcl scripts are in Contents/Resources/tcl. Edit the file and save, then (re)start the app to see any changes. Let us know what works.

No matter what tool I use, there’s always an error saying that the Menlo font file was not found and the resulting PDF is rendered with Courier fonts.
