Subject Re: Fop AFP / How to embed Verdana font in afp file ?
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2012 14:37:58 GMT
Thank you Alexios for your help,

I download TypeTransformer [ 
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=psd1P4000840 ] on my Windows7 
workstation, no problem to install and run it.
I try to create Verdana Afp font from Verdana windows TTF

First, I want to select Windows font directory to browse ttf files.
TypeTransformer exclude Windows\Fonts directory from directories selection 
I copy the 4 Verdana ttf files in another directory , and thats's work.

Second, I select in TypeTransformer
icon 1 - TypeFaces
icon 2 - Point sizes
icon 3 - Characters filters
   Button codepage : nothing to select.
   Button character list : I select LATIN.CLS
icon 4 - Start job
     Some character are not ....
     I selected YES

28/06/2012 16:17:59 DUV0018: Transformation of job JOB1 has started.
28/06/2012 16:17:59 DUV0001: Transformation of font Verdana (font character 
set C0A484B0, point size 12.0, resolution 240) has started.
28/06/2012 16:17:59 DUV0015: Transformation of font character set C0A484B0 
has ended.
28/06/2012 16:17:59 DUV0458: The record length for this character set is: 
28/06/2012 16:17:59 DUV0122: Transformation of 122 job JOB1 has successfully 

I obtain a raster Afp file C0A484B0.240 (46 Ko) for Verdana raster Normal 12 

In my fop.conf USERCONFIG.xml
I add :

<!-- Verdana Normal (raster) -->
          <afp-font type="raster" codepage="T1V10500" encoding="Cp500" 
          <afp-raster-font size="12" characterset="C0A484B0" />
          <font-triplet name="Verdana"  style="normal" weight="normal"/>

I run fop an I obtain the same Afp file without embeded font.
What's wrong ?

Try to use the free IBM Type Transformer for Windows [1] to transform a 
TrueType font to an AFP raster or outline font. You might find some other 
AFP tools at [2].
