Subject RE: problem with embedding fonts
Date Fri, 16 Jul 2010 13:12:35 GMT
The embedded font name is not supposed to match the font name.
I don't know if it makes a difference that I didn't like using a config
file so I loaded my font in with embedded code using the EmbedFontInfo
class, but this works fine for me.
If the font you're embedding is installed, Word should recognize it.
I copy and paste text from my pdf into Word and Word shows it as having
the embedded font "LucidaSans-Typewriter", where the closest Word
otherwise gets in the dropdown from the font listbutton is "Lucida Sans
I am using the fop.jar from 0.95.
It shouldn't matter that I downloaded and compiled the 0.95 jar from the
source download rather than downloading a binary jar.

How are you processing fop?  Are you using a command prompt, or embedded

Of course it could also be that there's a problem with how fop generates
the physical pdf file.  I couldn't get fop to properly send to the
correct tray of the correct network printer with a direct print option,
so I used the secondary program pdfbox to send the output (which sends
it as a Pageable object through the Java print classes), so I just used
that program also to create the physical pdf file.  I just use fop to do
the translation from the XML/XSL, and it gives me pdf format output in a
ByteArrayOutputStream object.

Subject: problem with embedding fonts


I have the following problem with embedding fonts:
i'm using apache-fop 0.95 (commandline) with a config file:
        <!-- register all the fonts found in a directory -->

in the fonts-directory there exists a new font: "MyFont.ttf"
Within the xsl-file i add the line '<xsl:attribute
Then I create the pdf and it looks quite well. But: the embedded font
has the Name "MyFont-Normal" instead of "MyFont".
What happens is that if I copy-paste a section from pdf into MSWord the
font will not be recognized / matched with the installed font (MyFont)
on the testmachine.

I've already tried wo embed this font by means of using:
        /fonts/MyFont.xml" kerning="yes"
           <font-triplet name="MyFont" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
The result is the same.

Can anybody explain this behaviour and maybe offer me a solution?

Thanks in advance
