PDF export: embedd TTF fonts

Post by wbloos » Tue Feb 24, 2015 3:14 pm

Hello,

I would like to use some TTF fonts in TreeDraw 4.3 and export this to PDF for printing - unfortunately the used TTF fonts are not embedded into the PDF so the used fonts are replaced with standard fonts, as far as these fonts are not installed on a different PC - or maybe I did a mistake when exporting to PDF?

thanks
Werner

Hi,

When you are exporting the PDF file, please click on the "Options" tab and set "Fonts mode" to "Embed TrueType fonts".

This works for both TrueType and OpenType fonts.

Hello Nick,

thanks for this hint - I did miss it - maybe since this setting is empty as default. Wouldn't it be a good idea to add a default option here e.g to embed TTF fonts?

greetings
Werner
