PRB: Known issues with document conversion add-on quality



ID: ZTN1281

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax Server Version 8.0.1 and later
  • Rendering add-on


Acrobat font appears as garbled characters.


In rare cases an Acrobat font is composed of glyphs, which the document conversion add-on is unable to read.


If sending from the client, print to the Zetafax printer. If sending from Outlook or the web client, configure an Acrobat rendering application in the mail gateway to render PDF documents.


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
