Infix can list all of the fonts used in a PDF plus additional information about the nature of each font.
- Choose Document->Fonts... to view the font catalogue.
Fonts introduced during the current editing session will not appear until the PDF is saved.
The columns shown are:
- Font name:
Names prefixed with XXXXXX+ represent subset fonts (embedded with only a subset of their full character set).
The format of the font. There are many formats that may be used within a PDF - TrueType, Type1, Type3, OpenType etc. Type 3 is one of the most problematic formats which often results in PDFs that cannot be edited. Fortunately use of this type of font is declining.
- Actual Font:
Embedded - indicates that the characters required by the PDF are included inside the PDF. To save space, PDF producers sometime choose not to include the fonts required in a PDF.
If not embedded, Infix will choose a font from your computer's system fonts to display the text. This can result in a loss of fidelity. The name of the chosen font will be shown in the column instead.
The encoding format of the Font. Most fonts are encoded as Unicode nowadays which tends to lead to better editing and exporting behaviour.
- No. of Glyphs:
The number of characters shapes defined by the font. To save space, PDF producers only include definitions for the character shapes actually used in a PDF.
- Select a font then click Replace... to open the Find and Replace Font dialog box.
- Press Remap... to change the characters mappings of the font. See Remapping fonts
- When editing text, choose Text->Character Palette... to view all of the glyphs contained in a font.
