Description Giuseppe Castagno (aka beppec56) 2008-02-03 16:41:23 UTC
On GNU/Linux Debian, home build OOH680_m6 tag. The 14 PDF standard fonts are always exported, even when exporting to non-PDF/A-1a. The attached document contains all the 14 standard PDF fonts, to check as follows: 1)open the document with OOH680_m6 2)confirm the PDF/A-1a checkbox on the general tab as unchecked and export the file 3)open the file with Acrobat Reader 4)look at “File > Properties > (tab) Fonts”: the fonts are all embedded. Repeat the operation with a 2.3.1 version, the fonts are not embedded. -> pl. I did some debug on a m245 version I'm working on. It seems the up to PDFWriterImpl::filterDevFontList the 14 fonts are loaded into pFiltered. So I think this is outside the PDF/A-1a stuff, since the PDF/A-1a is not touched by this behavior. What changes is the size of the PDF file when the user chose the standard fonts to have the PDF smaller... Last observation is about the font chosen to display the standard ones that are different than the one used for vanilla 2.3.1, on the same PC. In any case I think that some tests on other platform should be in order before confirming, may be I'm plainly wrong.

It seems that the fontconfig integration from issue 54603 suggests that the fonts should be replaced. Type "fc-match Times" to see how fontconfig wants Times to be replaced. OOo respecting these system wide global configuration setting is a kind of feature... disabling it for PDF export only or for the base14 fonts contradicts the spirit of this deeper system integration, which is heavily requested by the distributions.
Comment 5 Giuseppe Castagno (aka beppec56) 2008-02-06 10:31:43 UTC
-> hdu. Checked with fc-match Times, result: fc-match -s Times | head timR12.pcf.gz: "Times" "Regular" n021003l.pfb: "Nimbus Roman No9 L" "Regular" Times_New_Roman.ttf: "Times New Roman" "Normal" DejaVuSerif.ttf: "DejaVu Serif" "Book" I guess the second line it's the one honored by OOo. So OOo behaves according to fontconfig configuration. But the chosen font is a Type1 font and since it's not subsetted while exporting to PDF. as a side effect the PDF becomes larger then before 2.4, expecially on small files (e.g. the file I submitted is ~ 12k, becomes 1M when exported). It seems that with the OOo font replacement table you can't overcome this issue. On Tools > Options > OOo > Fonts I added the following table (wasn't there on first try): Courier > replaced by Courier New Helvetica > replaced by Arial Symbol > replaced by Standard Symbols L Times > replaced by Times New Roman Zapf DingBats > replaced by Dingbats I chose most of the TTF I have installed on my Linux box. Then I ticked both Always and Screen checkboxes. But only the rows with 'Symbol' and Zapf Dingbats were honored by OOo, not the others. Is this expected? Or the only way to change the font substitution behavior in platforms using fontconfig is by changing the fonconfig configuration data? Last, I agree that issue 54603 is a good improvement, but shouldn't OOo have the substitution table take precedence over the fontconfig settings?
