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.
