Topic: Internal Printer Fonts

Hello All,

I have a JD Edwards system that outputs reports as a PDF document - it has basic formating of the text and we can choose which TrueType font we require for text such as headers.

To improve the quality of the documents I wish to have an e-forms overlay merged with the JD Edwards output at print time (the JD Edwards system can not handle graphic objects such as logos)

Enough of the preamble, this is the problem that I gratefully require somebodies assistance:

The eforms software can look into a document and search for keywords - those keywords however have to be formatted as an internal printer font - e.g. Courier. Furthermore, the eforms software must receive a PCL5 print stream.

Whenever I try to use a courier font in a report that becomes a JD Edwards PDF - the courier font is substituted for a TrueType font and the keyword can not be found.

Is there anyway of ensuring that a chosen printer font remains a printer font, so that when I print the PDF as PCL5 it receives the correct keyword.

Many Thanks
