Using Custom AFP Raster Font Files
cpdef.fntare considered custom.
If the custom font consists of raster characters, the AFP2PDF Plus Transform can be
configured to process the AFP font data for high fidelity output. To do this, the
transform first looks for the AFP coded fonts, code pages, and character sets entries
afpfont.fnt file. If the font objects are listed, the transform looks for the necessary AFP font
resource data, using this search order:
- Resources that are inline with the document data
- The resource group file specified on the
- Resource directories
Processing AFP raster font characters provides higher-fidelity output than AFP printed output; but when these small raster characters are presented on the screen, the display may not be optimal because image data is dynamically scaled.
