  Subject: Does Not Find New Fonts
   PostPosted: 24 Mar 2010, 18:19 
I am trying to render an HTML document with Chinese characters into a PDF and it either inserts ??? for the missing characters or it totally ignores them.

In my logs I see this:
Code:
ENCODING=UTF8
version: PD4ML 351 Pro
not yet in cache: file:C:\DEV\workspaceECLIPSE\portal\web-colo\target\work\webapp\WEB-INF\classes\com\xxxx\xxxx\portal\render\document/pd4fonts.properties
not yet in cache: file:C:\DEV\workspaceECLIPSE\portal\web-colo\target\work\webapp\WEB-INF\classes\com\xxxx\xxx\portal\render\document/xxxx-propu.ttf
read 'xxxx proportional unicode' from file:C:\DEV\workspaceECLIPSE\portal\web-colo\target\work\webapp\WEB-INF\classes\com\xxxx\xxxx\portal\render\document/xxxx-propu.ttf
'xxxx proportional unicode bold' is not in pd4fonts.properties file
reject TTF lookup for: 'xxxx proportional unicode bold'
'times' is not in pd4fonts.properties file
reject TTF lookup for: 'times'
'times new roman' is not in pd4fonts.properties file
reject TTF lookup for: 'times new roman'
'akzidenzgroteskbe-bold' is not in pd4fonts.properties file
reject TTF lookup for: 'akzidenzgroteskbe-bold'
done in 500ms.


This is the code that I believe is relevant:
Code:
String pathToPd4fontsProps = "/com/xxxx/xxxx/portal/render/document/pd4fonts.properties";
URL fontPathURL            = PD4MLDocumentRenderer.class.getResource( pathToPd4fontsProps );
File fileP                 = new File(fontPathURL.toURI());
fontPath                   = fileP.getParent();

Later on in the same method I have this code:
Code:
pd4ml.enableDebugInfo();
pd4ml.useTTF( fontPath, true );

I followed the documents on this site to generate my pd4browser.properties, which is located in the same directory as the fonts and contains the following:
Code:
#
#Wed Mar 24 07:21:32 EDT 2010
adobe.font.metrics=true
debug.info.enable=false
document.author=
document.title=
footer.color=\#000000
footer.font.face=Courier New
footer.font.size=10
footer.font.style=0
footer.height=12
footer.init.page.num=1
footer.page.num.align=right
footer.page.num.template=null
footer.pages.to.skip=0
footer.title.align=center
footer.title.template=null
header.color=\#000000
header.font.face=Courier New
header.font.size=10
header.font.style=0
header.height=12
header.init.page.num=1
header.page.num.align=right
header.page.num.template=null

userSpace.width=800
viewer.executeble=acroread.exe
viewer.params=
window.height=100
window.width=100
window.x=850
window.y=600

Finally, my pd4fonts.properties file is located in the same directory as the fonts and pd4browser.properties and it contains the following:
Code:
#this is an autogenerated file. please remove manually any references to copyrighted fonts
#Wed Mar 24 07:21:32 EDT 2010
KaiTi_GB2312=SIMKAI.TTF
xxxx\ Fixed\ 2\ Unicode=xxxx-fixed2U.ttf
xxxx\ Fixed\ Unicode=xxxx-fixedu.ttf
xxxx\ Fixed\ Unicode\ B=xxxx-FixedU_B.ttf
xxxx\ Fixed\ Unicode\ C=xxxx-FixedU_C.ttf
xxxx\ Fixed\ Unicode\ D=xxxx-FixedU_D.ttf
xxxx\ Fixed\ Unicode\ F=xxxx-FixedU_F.ttf
xxxx\ Prop\ Unicode\ B=xxxx-PropU_B.ttf
xxxx\ Prop\ Unicode\ C=xxxx-PropU_C.ttf
xxxx\ Prop\ Unicode\ D=xxxx-PropU_D.ttf
xxxx\ Prop\ Unicode\ F=xxxx-PropU_F.ttf
xxxx\ Proportional\ Unicode=xxxx-propu.ttf


You see that I have a mention of the Chinese font "KaiTi_GB2312=SIMKAI.TTF" but obviously it never is even mentioned. What am I doing wrong?
My PDFs do get rendered but either with question marks or with the Chinese characters totally omitted. Please help.

Thank you,
Ty

Try turning on PD4ML debugging and you should be able to see the TTFs loading in the logs. To see the debugging, you may need to restart your application server. There are some default CSS styles like "simsum" for Chinese that you could map in your pd4fonts.properties file (part of the font substitution functionality, I believe).
