Function Reference
Page 715 of 818
Type 1 fonts are always stored unchanged in the PDF file. Font subsetting is not supported for this
font format.
Font Embedding
All supported font formats can be embedded as long as font embedding is not restricted in the font
file. Font embedding can be disabled when using the code page 1252 or MacRoman, but it is
required if another code page is used; the parameter Embed is ignored in this case. If font embedding
is required but not possible due to licensing restrictions the function will fail.
However, when creating Asian PDF files it is possible to use CID-keyed fonts instead. The CID-
Keyed Font Architecture works with embedded and non-embedded OpenType and TrueType fonts.
See SetCIDFont() for further information.
The 14 Standard Fonts
All versions of Adobe's Acrobat support 14 standard fonts. These fonts are always available
independent whether they're embedded or not.

DynaPDF includes the metrics of these fonts only. Please note that standard fonts have the lowest
search priority. If a standard font is available in one of the font search paths then this version will be
used. The font search order can be changed with SetFontSearchOrder().
