Support Unicode/UTF-8 texts in fontmode without embedding

(combit Team) #1

I want to use non western characters in PDF. For some reason I have to set Font subset even for unicode fonts like Arial for each Text Item or Line in RTF. It seems to have no effect anyway and only solution to create PDF with correct characters is to us PDF.FontMode=6. This make resulting file MUCH bigger.

When I “print” same file in PDF Creator, the PDF is nice and much smaller then FontMode=5. I would like to have same nice PDF from LL without font embedding.

We plan to offer Type3 fonts in LL21. They offer a more compact Unicode support and will likely be the solution you’re looking for. If you like, feel free to send me a preview file and the PDF that’s your reference for a double-check.
