Embedding Type 1 Fonts
The Type 1 font must be in binary (PFB/PFM) format. If a font is in ASCII (AFM/PFA) format, you must convert it before it can be used with the transform. Type 1 fonts typically consist of a printer font binary (PFB) file and a printer font metrics (PFM) file. The PFB file contains the mathematical descriptions (in the PostScript language) for each character. The PFM file contains the font metrics needed for the characters.
For example, assume a Type 1 font is made up of the files
CustFont.pfm. The file extensions of
.pfm files must be lowercase for the transform to correctly identify these files. The
font file name,
CustFont must be the same for both the
For the transform to use these files, you must specify:
- Where the files are located.
- When the files should be substituted for a specific AFP font.
