I have downloaded NOTO CJK OTF fonts (https://www.google.com/get/noto/help/cjk/) and converted into TTF from https://convertio.co/.

But when i was using the following command the pd4fonts.properties was not generating any entries for the fonts.

Question 1: Why the -configure.fonts utility is not working with the noto ttf fonts and not generating pd4fonts.properties
Question 2: Is there anyway I can get some DEBUG information while running -configure.fonts utility.
Questions 3: Eventually, i need a JAR file which I can place in my app lib folder to load these fonts for PD4ML, Can i just get a jar file with CJK font i can directly use in my java code to generate PDF ?
Question 4: Assuming , somehow get the noto jar with ttf embedding , what should be the right replacement for the java method arguments?
pd4ml.setDefaultTTFs(“Times New Roman”, “Arial”, “Courier New”); // current

pd4ml.setDefaultTTFs(“NotoSansCJK”, “Arial”, “Courier New”); //Proposed??

Please let me know if you need any more information.
