Editing the coded font definition file
You might have to edit the coded font definition file if you created or modified a code page or a character set and have linked them in a coded font.
- Contains definitions for approximately 2500 coded fonts, including the AFP Font Collection and Infoprint Fonts. Do not edit this file.
- A file that you can edit to include any coded fonts that you have created.
CODED.FNTfile uses this syntax:
- The identifier for the coded font that joins the CHARSET and the CODEPAGE.
- The 8-character identifier for the character set.
- The AFP code page name.
For example, the
CODED.FNT file might contain these entries:
X?A155N1=C?A155N1,T1DCDCFS X0T0550C=C0T05500,T1DCDCFSYou can use a question mark (?) as the wildcard character for any single character in the coded font name and the character set name. You can enter more than one ? character.

C:\Program Files\Ricoh\ProcessDirector\afpviewer\font(Windows) and find the file
- Copy the file
coded.fntand save it as a backup.For example, you can save the copy as coded.fnt.bak.
coded.fntin a file editor.
- Insert new lines for the coded fonts that your files require, using the syntax above.
