PS Font Support?
By Tim Dexter-Oracle on Sep 10, 2008
I have had a few questions recently asking about our support for Postscript fonts. Yes, we do support them but we dont document it. Why? We want you to use Truetype fonts if at all possible. We support those thoroughly, PS Fonts, not quite so well.
If you still want to use the PS fonts you will need the pfb and pfm files and you'll have to do some manual set up in the config file yourself. The xdo.cfg file needs to sit under the JAVA_HOME/jre/lib directory and will need the following entry under the fonts section.
<font family="IDAutomationC128S" style="normal" weight="normal">
<type1 pfb="D:\fonts\IDAutomationC128S.pfb" pfm="D:\fonts\IDAutomationC128S.pfm" />
Same rules apply as for Truetype fonts the family attribute needs to contain the font name you see in MSWord when selecting the font.
Once you have that set up on the server you will be able to see the font in your outputs. Just remember, we strongly recommend using truetype fonts. If you get an issue with your PS fonts let us know through an SR but no promises on addressing it.
