support font embedding in projectfiles

I want to embedding fonts in projectfiles so I don’t have to install the font on every system.

It’s very helpful, if we want to use a licensed or exclusive fonts and it’s not allow or unwanted to use the font for other things.

Nice idea - we already have most of the required techniques in the product in order to render PDF documents with embedded fonts to the preview. These fonts are embedded in the preview files in turn and are installed on-the-fly for the viewing process. Something similar would work here. Note however that afaik fonts can opt-out of embedding which is done at times by licensed fonts. In that case, this wouldn’t work. The API that would be used is TTEmbedFontEx which can and may return an error for patented fonts. A good test would be to print a document using the font to the PDF export. If that works, it should also be feasible to embed the font into the project file.
