I am trying to make pdf from some of my charts but it seems that the ttf fonts are not used. The SVG (and .png) are looking good but the PDF falls back on the default (and also non italic) font. Is this a know issue and if so, is there a fix / work around for this?
Another possibility is that the copyright of the font does not permit embedding.
Each TTF font has a flag that indicates if embedding is allowed. ChartDirector will not embed a TTF font if it sets the flag that disallow embedding. If I can obtain the font, I can try it too see if it can be embedded.
If you double click on the font on Windows, you can see the font details. A true type font will be displayed as having "True Type Outlines", while CFF font will be displayed as having "Postscript Outlines". I have attached two screenshots for your reference.
(The file extension is not a reliable means to determine the font type. We need to use a font viewer to determine the actual font type.)
For your case, is it possible to use an alternative TTF font?
