Hi everyone,

I am new to fonts and other stuffs related to fonts.

I am trying to creates some pdf document with iText(A pdf generation tool).

I am using some afm font files for supporting fonts.

My problem is;

When i load those afm files , entries gets overlapped. ie ...if a entry has value "test" then all the characters are overlapped in pdf. After some initial analysis i found that my afm files were missing an "Entry -EncodingScheme ".

When i manually put this entry "EncodingScheme StandardEncoding or AdobeStandardEncoding" in afm file ,all works fine.

But there are so many afm files and i cannot do it manually for all fonts as i got to know that this entry - "EncodingScheme" varies for font to font.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

I got a link over internet on adobe site..where a lots of afm files are available to download. I checked one or more files from there and they had the above mentioned entry in them.

My question is if i download afm files from adobe download link then can i ship them with my application or do i require some license for shipping them with my application.

Please reply it soon..

Regards,

Sachin
