FIX: Zetadocs PDF does not embed fonts in the generated PDF



ID: ZTN3507

This Zetadocs PDF technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs PDF version 1.0


A user opens a PDF file created by Zetadocs PDF which contains a non-standard font, and the font is rendered incorrectly, i.e. a different font is used. However the PDF looks correct on the machine which created the PDF and the PDF looks correct on any machine which has the non-standard font installed.


Zetadocs PDF has not embedded fonts in the generated PDF. Therefore if the user who is viewing the PDF does not have the font installed on their machine, the font will be substituted with a system font which matches the missing font as closely as possible.


Use a standard system font in the source document when creating the PDF.


This problem has been fixed in Zetadocs PDF v1.1.


This behaviour was corrected by the update listed above.
