Description hennerdrewes 2008-06-20 11:00:02 UTC
Symbol fonts contained in a PDF file created with Ghostscript are not imported
correctly.

If I create the PDF using OOo's PDF export, there is no problem.

Hi, as i can see it is a problem of Ghostscript. OO imports the target PDF in
same way as Acrobat Reader. 

Best regards,

Artem .

@akhva:

When opening the attached PDF documents in Adobe Reader, both display in the
same way. When examining "Document properties, Fonts" in Adobe Reader, the OOo
PDF contains the fonts with encoding "built-in". The GS PDF contains the font
with encoding "custom". 

As the two documents are displayed in the same way in Adobe Reader, the result
of the OOo import should be the same. Probably the import extension should be
enhanced to handle the "custom" encoding.

Reopening this issue.

Even if the problem is in Ghostscript, the import extension should be able to
import Ghostscript generated PDFs.

Posted issue 101695: The font is now recognized with this fix. 

But there are remaining problems with the examples posted here, so it makes
sense to leave this issue open.

The symbols from Wingdings font are not imported at all. 
The spacing of the EW Sans Serif symbols is not correct.
