Hi to all,

This is somewhat important problem.We have some fonts like courier, helvetica,etc..which were supported in form fields for acrobat which supports english.But, when i keep those fonts for acrobat which supports multi-languages its not taking.We using

AFPDFieldGetDefaultTextAppearance(pdField, &textP);
where textP is TextAppearence_t structure.which i have to fillup with text, allignment and size and set that functon. We using namefont like
textP.nameFont= ASAtomFromString(cstabtext);
where cstabtext is "courier" etc .We are using namefont because if i use basefont,i see the courier though i set the font of form field as courier-bold , helvetica instead of helvetica-bold etc..i mean its not taking the sub ones.

If i use basefont, its adding but not taking sub-ones.If i use namefont its not taking for multilanguages.No problem with english acrobat.

Its mean Formfields.
