How do I embed fonts into an already existing PDF using Python?
There is the i library but that Java not python you could bridge using jython though. However once the PDF has been created the fonts will have be subsetted by that point so you may not get the result you are looking for. For example your document may use Helvetica i.e. system Helvetica but if you a font it may be under a different name. PDF does this deliberately to avoid font name clashing. Recreating the PDF and ding the fonts at that stage is a much better idea.
Can you embed fonts in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac?
Can you fonts in PowerPoint 216 for Mac? question qid 113396 As far as I know no. According to my experience font ding is a feature which is limited to Windows Word & PowerPoint only (Excel doesn do font ding in any case - it just allows the user to specify a font to be used but that font needs to be available on the ). And even then it only works correctly if the fonts have the correct ding rights. This is an issue clients and design agencies trip over again and again. But no Mac doesn seem to allow font ding into a file. Depending on what you are trying to do exactly a possible workaround could be to save your file directly from PowerPoint 216 for Mac as a pdf. But this is obviously no help if you need to send the presentation to someone else to edit. If you need to get the presentation to a client who doesn have the font youre using and he needs to add content then perhaps you can send them the presentation in the knowledge that itlle back with the wrong font. But then use the Reuse Slide(s) function (under New Slide) to take the content italic from the client presentation and magic it into the correct design (which includes the correct font) on your machine. I know it a pain but the whole topic of custom fonts and dability is prettyplex and even the fontpanies struggle to get it right (because they are typically more focused on Adobe InDesign etc. and not on us poor Office-using mortals). Hope this helps a little.
Can I convert a document made on my Mac to a Word document so I can open it on a Windows device?
Youll need to be specific as to what program youre using to get the best answers. If youre using any recent version of Microsoft Word it will open pretty much exactly as written on a Windowsputer. Keep in mind though that if youre using a font that doesn exist on the other personputer it will look different and unlike the Windows version of Office you can fonts without making a PDF.
Why does the document you created in your computer display with a different font at other places?
Fonts are normally installed inputer operating systems (OS) such as Windows or macOS. Any font installed in your OS can be used in any app. When you create and edit documents the app refers to the font file installed in your OS. The font isn part of the document file so when the document is opened in an app on a differentputer the app tries to reference the font file in thatputer OS. If the same font isn installed it has to pick a different one. Most apps will use one default serif font for any missing serif font and one default sans-serif font for any missing sans-serif font. The only way to ensure a document appears the same way on otherputers is to the font file in the document. This isn done as standard because it would infringe the copyright in the font. If everyone swapped fonts freely in document files nobody would buy fonts. Most of the time in practice people swap Microsoft Word documents using fonts installed as standard in Microsoft Windows so theirputers all have the same font files. Adobe PDF document format offers a way to fonts legally ensuring theyre only used to render the document and can be extracted for infringing use. So if you want to share a document with fonts intact export it as a PDF (most apps support this) ensuring any option to include fonts is ticked. Recipients will always see the fonts rendered correctly. This isn a good workaround if your recipients need to edit the document because PDF is a format intended for viewing not editing. The only way to share an editable file that includes custom fonts is to also give the recipient the relevant font files from your OS which they can then install on theirputer before opening the document. This is fine if the fonts are copyright-released for distribution such as Google Fonts. In any other case you would be infringing copyright. In Windows 1 you can right-click on a font in Control Panel Fonts and Copy then Paste the font file elsewhere (perhaps into an email). To add it to theirputer the recipient can right-click the font file and choose Install. On a Mac open the Font Book app click Computer find a font in the list right-click and choose Show in Finder. You can drag this font file to another location or into an email. The recipient can double-click the file to preview and install it. Although various font formats exist most fontse as TrueType (TTF) or OpenType (OTF) files which will work on both Windows PCs and Macs.
How do you find a font with the same width as another font?
Generally you don. At least not exactly. I got a patent for font ID based on the fact that the collective s of glyphs in a font are unique There are some exceptions. Monospaced or writer style fonts have all their glyphs the same . Typically it is half or 6% of the point size (or em in font speak). So their s are easily matched. It is possible to use axis-based font technology (such as multiple master or OpenType variations) to faux another font. This is an approach that Adobe Acrobat used to do when document file sizes were more of an issue you could only the character s in the PDF and Acrobat would simulate the look of the document without using the actual font. Almost nobody wants that any more so it is more an obscure theoretical thing than amon use case. ordered-list But if you have an arbitrary randomly-selected font that isn monospaced and you want an already-existing italic font that matches its character s generally your odds are not good.
