Mapping outline fonts

If the AFP document you are converting to PDF contains Outline fonts, you can create a smaller PDF document by adding the Outline fonts to the afp2pdf.cfg file.

You use the Foca_Font_Path option in the afp2pdf.cfg file to specify the path and name of the coded font. The name can be an actual coded font name or a character set/code page pair that identifies the font.

The afp2pdf transform uses this search order for Outline fonts:

  1. The font directory specified with the Foca_Font_Path value in the afp2pdf.cfg is searched.
  2. When an Outline font is not found in the Foca_Font_Path value in the afp2pdf.cfg, the afp2pdf transform uses a default font. The default font is a Type1 font, one of the PDF Base 14 Fonts, or one of the virtual DBCS (Type0) fonts. You specify the default font in the csdef.fnt file.
