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..
