I am using iText for PDF generation. I have some characters/symbols to print like ∈, ∩, ∑, ∫, ∆ (Mathematical symbols) and many others.
I have a String that consists of a constant part and a variable part. I want the variable to be formatted using a regular font within the text paragraph, whereas I want the constant part to be bold.
I'm using a fixed cell height to create a table. If the font size is too large, the text is not visible in the table. Is there a built-in function in iText that automatically reduces the font size to the maximum possible size, or do I have to implement this by myself?
I get following exception: ExceptionConverter: java.io.IOException: /fonts/CALIBRI.TTF not found as file or resource. Caused By: java.io.IOException: /fonts/CALIBRI.TTF not found as file or resource.
I have a class given below which is giving me Exception: Exception in thread "main" com.itextpdf.text.DocumentException: com.itextpdf.text.pdf.PdfAConformanceException: All the fonts must be embedded. This one isn't: ZapfDingbats
I am asked to include partial font into a PDF. I think I will use iText and I found how to embed the font, but I found no clue about partial embedding. Does anybody know if partial embedding is automatic? Or maybe iText does not have this feature?
I am generating PDF documents with iText. When I try to include the "Agenda Tabular Light" font, iText ignores my choice of font. I confirmed that the font isn't set using Adobe Reader's File > Properties > Fonts . The PDF shows that Helvetica was used, but I didn't choose Helvetica.
I create different PDFs and then concatenate them into a single PDF. My resulting PDF is a lot bigger than I had expected in file size. As it turns out, my PDF has a ton of duplicate fonts, and this is the reason why it's so big. I would like to create PDFs which only embed font information, not the full font.
I want to use Verdana as a font while stamping a PDF file with iText PDF. The original file uses Verdana, which isn't an option in the class Basefont .
Can someone help me with writing the code to use a system font?
