PDFlib offers free Acrobat plug-in for analyzing fonts in PDFs
February 16, 2005
PDFlib has announced the availability of a free Acrobat plugin for analyzing fonts in PDF documents. PDFlib FontReporter, which provides detailed font- and encoding-related information, and prints glyph tables for all fonts in a document, is available for Mac (plug-in currently in beta) and Windows. It supports all types of fonts (whether simple font or CID) and encodings in PDF, including the new OpenType embedding format introduced in PDF 1.6/Acrobat 7.
In addition to the actual glyph outlines, FontReporter displays the glyph names for simple fonts and Unicode mappings (if a ToUnicode CMap is available). FontReporter fully supports CJK fonts, and correctly processes CJK font names even on Western systems.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
