Using font-mapping files to map fonts

To map a custom AFP font to a Java font, edit one or more of the sample font-mapping files that AFP Visual Environment provides.

The mappings in the font-mapping files are used to display all AFP files in AFP Visual Environment unless an AFP font is mapped to a Java font in the AFP Visual Environment control file.

Note: The font-mapping files must exist on both the preparation system and the production system.

To use font-mapping files to map an AFP font to a Java font:
  1. Navigate to the directory where you installed AFP Visual Environment.
  2. Open the sample font-mapping files in a file editor, edit them, and save them.
    All font-mapping files that you want to use must be in the same directory.
  3. If you edited sample file SampleCodePointMap.cp, rename it to the name of the AFP code page.
    For example, if the name of the code page is T1000259, name the file T1000259.cp.
