Topic: Acrobat Reader and Embedded bitmaps in TrueType fonts
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 120946

I have a TrueType font that contains only embedded bitmap characters along with a single outline character as a default glyph. When this font is embedded in a PDF document and viewed using Acrobat Reader (6.0.2) all characters in the font are displayed using the default glyph.

I have extracted the TrueType font from the PDF document, installed it on Windows 2000 and viewed the characters in the font.

Does anybody know if Acrobat Reader supports embedded bitmap characters (i.e. the 'EBLC' and EBDT' tables) ?
