- Embedding Type 1 FontsWhen a custom AFP font is used in an AFP document, it might be necessary to generate an equivalent Type 1 outline font. You can configure the transform program to embed this Type 1 outline font in the output PDF file for proper display.
- Mapping AFP fontsThe afp2pdf transform needs to map the AFP fonts your document was created with to fonts that can be used in PDF documents.
- Using TrueType fontsThe afp2pdf transform supports the use of TrueType fonts.
- Using Outline fontsThe afp2pdf transform supports Outline Font Object Content Architecture (FOCA). The addition of FOCA support improves character placement for AFP raster fonts and provides 100% font fidelity for AFP outline fonts.
