Hello

Starting position:
- SAP / Adobe Forms (Livecycle Designer)
- Zebra Printer ZE500 300dpi
- TrueType Font Arial Narrow (installed on the printer)
- Adobe Livecycle Workbench-Helps for XDC files are known, but we still get no further


Problem:
Although everything looks OK in the print preview, but it does not print the correct font.

Supposition:
The .XDC file is not correct.

Question:
How must the .XDC file be adapted so that the correct font that is installed on the printer is used?
(both Latin-I and Latin-II character sets)
Does the .XDC file really have to be adjusted manually or is there another way (e.g. using the SAP form?)?

In particular the following lines:


<!-- ========================================== -->
<!-- Font Mappings -->
<!-- written to var fontName -->
<!-- ========================================== -->
<seq id="CG Triumvirate_Normal_Normal_ISO-8859-1">0</seq>
<seq id="ZebraA_Normal_Normal_ISO-8859-1">A</seq>

<option name="enumerateFonts">0</option>
<option name="startingFontNumber">9000</option>
<option name="startingFontLetter">I</option>
<option name="softFontCompression">asciiHex</option>
<option name="softFontDevice">R:</option>
<option name="alwaysOutputFontSelect">1</option>

softFontDevice R: = RAM? E: = FlashMemory?

<!-- ========================================== -->
<!-- Fonts -->
<!-- ========================================== -->
<font typeface="CG Triumvirate" size="1000pt" weight="normal" posture="normal" select="implicitLink" textEncoding="ISO-8859-1">
<metrics defaultCharWidth="867pt" textEncoding="ISO-8859-1" ascent="750pt" descent="250pt" lineHeight="1200pt" pitch="variable" scalable="1" source="">

</metrics>
</font>
<font typeface="ZebraA" size="1000pt" weight="normal" posture="normal" select="implicitLink" textEncoding="ISO-8859-1">
<metrics defaultCharWidth="555pt" textEncoding="ISO-8859-1" ascent="777pt" descent="223pt" lineHeight="1200pt" pitch="variable" scalable="1" source="">
<charWidths>32-255:555pt</charWidths>
</metrics>
</font>


We would be very grateful for any help, as we are a bit at a loss in the meantime and there are countless possibilities / variables.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Hi

No, unfortunately not, since no help came/cannot be expected from Adobe, Zebra or SAP.

We will conduct further testing in due course and will resort to a no-TrueType font as a last resort. (...one would think that in 2022 this shouldn't be a problem. WYSIWYG)


If anyone has a solution, we would also be grateful.
Because the whole test is not only very time-consuming, but there is also no logic in the results.


Have a nice day.
