|BUG: PDF documents with embedded TrueType fonts cause problems |
A number of problems have been reported with AspPDF-generated PDF documents containing
embedded TrueType fonts. These problems include, but are not limited to, the following:
The problems above have been encountered with PDF documents generated by version 1.4 and earlier of AspPDF.
- Acrobat's TouchUp Text Tool refuses to edit or even highlight text drawn using
an embedded TrueType font, although it works well with the 14 standard PDF fonts.
- Certain "preflight" PDF-processing packages, such as Enfocus PitStop, report a fatal error
when processing PDF documents containing embedded TrueType fonts.
- Adobe Illustrator fails to recognize the embedded font in a document and replaces
it with another font.
The problems described above were traced to the omission
of a /StemV entry in the PDF documents' font descriptor dictionaries. The bug
was fixed by Version 184.108.40.206 (service release). PDF documents generated by AspPDF 220.127.116.11+
will no longer manifest these problems.
AspPDF 18.104.22.168 also fixes a few other minor font-related bugs.
