Using font-mapping files with the ps2afp or the pdf2afp command
By default, InfoPrint uses the psfonts.map font-mapping file when you enter the ps2afp or the pdf2afp command; you do not have to specify the name of the default font-mapping file with the command.
To use font-mapping files that you have created when you enter the ps2afp or the pdf2afp command, you must do one of these:
- Enter the path and name of the font-mapping file as the value of the ps_font_map_files keyword
in the transform daemon configuration file. For performance reasons, this
is the recommended method. You can specify more than one font-mapping file,
if necessary. Separate the font-mapping files with colons.
For example, to specify the font-mapping files
font2.map, enter this:
- Enter the path and name of the font-mapping file as the value of the ps_font_map_files transform command configuration file. Use the same syntax as described for entering the value in the transform daemon configuration file. Using this method can result in significant performance degradation.
- Specify the font-mapping file, including its path name, from the command
line using the -F flag of the ps2afp or the pdf2afp command.
You can specify multiple files using multiple -F flags; InfoPrint concatenates
them from left-to-right (first entered to last entered) in that order.
ps2afp -F/path/font.mapThis method can also result in degraded performance.
