#### Converting fonts back to fonts?

Have a one page PDF document containing just a small amount of text --
but file size is 900 kB instead of say 20 or 30 kB.

Opening it in Illustrator and selecting any one character in the text
causes the Type palette to indicate that each such character is
Helvetica Neue, Regular, 14 pt -- but looking more closely at the
character itself seems to show that each character in the text has been,
for some reason, converted into a separate and complex vector object.

And, pulling down the Type >> Find Fonts menu command seems to show that
the document contains _no_ fonts at all (in either half of the Find
window) . . . ???

Is there a quick, safe way to convert this document back into "real
type"?

No. Once text has been converted to outlines/pathes it no longer
contains font information.

That's the only option.

I often compare this with baking pan cakes.
You use eggs to make pan cakes, but once you
have a stack of pan cakes on a plate, you can't
extract the egg white and yoke anymore to put
them back in the eggshells.

Hi AES

A great little resource for this problem:
http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

If you can't remember this link at a later date, just type in What the
font (Google gives it to you as the first link).

Copy your type into Photoshop and save as a jpg, then upload. It'll
give you a list of fonts it may be.

As the OP I'm relatively clueless on the fine details here.  I knew
enough to recognize that each character had been (at some unknown time
earlier) converted into a vector outline.  Illustrator, however, still
seemed to know (or at least remember from earlier) what font each such
character was from.

So questions were (and still are):

1)  Does Illustrator also still remember, or can it deduce, what
specific character each vector outline image is (or was)?

2)  And if that knowledge is still there, can the individual images be
converted back?  Is there a command in Illustrator to do this.

For both the answer is no.

The font has been converted to vector, the font is no font anymore.
But do try Connie's idea, lots of times it works like a charm if your
font is clear. No need for Photoshop, just save a line of text as JPEG
in Illustrator, upload it in http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ and
follow the instructions.

Actually, I didn't contribute anything to this thread! :)

I've only tried OCRing a few times ... for some reason, every scanner (and
the accompanying OCR software) I've ever tried it on has stunk and it ended
up harder to edit the misreads later than it was to either type it myself
(I'm a pretty good typist!) or hire someone else to do it!

Since my advice would have been to just retype it or hire someone else to, I
figured that'd be too much of a bummer and didn't say anything! ;)

You could look at the /FontBBox entry in the font dictionary anc compute the scaling factor (ant thus the "font height") from the FontBBox and the pitch value you get from PCL. Note that this only makes sense for fixed pitch fonts. And note that the /isFixedPitch value in the /FontInfo dictionary isn't always reliable for determining if the font is fixed pitch or not.

pdftex/LuaTeX/XeTeX: Legal Issues with Font Embedding in pdf Fonts
Dear all, I'd appreciate it if there anybody who has answers to the following questions or pointers as to where to obtain further information. I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge about (la)tex font technology. (The main reason for my lack of knowledge is that I prefer to stay away from it as far as possible.:-) Background: I'm not familiar with a formal definition of font embedding, but some opentype font licences state that you may embed'' font subsets of an OpenType font. Question 1: If I were to produce a pdf from an opentype font with XeTeX or LuaTeX, would the resulting pdf properly and legally embed font subsets? Question 2: If I were to use otftotfm to turn an OpenType font into some tex font metric files and use them (in combination with pdftex), would this be legal font embedding? (My guess is that it doesn't, but it depends on the definition of font embedding.) Question 3: Of course the previous two questions depend on the definition of font embedding. Is there a technical definition of what it means to embed a subset of an OpenType font in a pdf file? If yes, I'd appreciate some pointers and a short explanation as to what it means in the context of pdftex/XeTeX/LuaTeX. Thanks in advance for your help.

Replacing Type 3 fonts with Type 1 fonts in PDF files
Dear people, I have some documents that were produced with (La)TeX quite some time ago. Unfortunately, some of them use the Computer Modern fonts in low resolution (say, embedded with 300dpi) and, to make matters worse, some of the documents I have have already been converted from PS to PDF with the use of ps2pdf (which calls ghostscript as an auxiliary program). I do know that Heiko has a program called pkfix (which is a Perl script) to operate on PS files for substitution of the bitmapped fonts with scalable fonts, but it unfortunately doesn't work for documents created with some early versions of dvips. I have already used Heiko's program, but I still have some PDF files that include bitmapped fonts. Is there any way to batch-replace the fonts of a bunch of documents with fonts from, say, the cm-super package (which I have installed on my computer)? I am currently using Debian's teTeX 2.0, but I can upgrade to teTeX 3.0 if that would make anything easier. I would prefer to have a solution involving only Free Software, but depending on the solution, this requirement may be dropped. Any comments are more than welcome regarding this issue.

How to make sure that font style/size in graphics matches with text font/size?
Hi, I'm writing my phd thesis with pdfLaTeX (KOMA script package with "standard" serif fonts, 11 pt) and now have to create technical drawings, schemes and diagrams. (My thesis is about engineering, so there will have to be some technical drawings and sketches, flow charts and schemes, fotos and many many graphs... I'm writing on a PowerBook with OS X, but am also working on a PC with Windows XP.) I'm not sure what software to use to create (vector) graphics and how to ensure that font size and style look good with the text of the document... Should the text in the graphs also be a serif font or should it be sans serif as a contrast? Is there any tutorial how to layout graphics to look great with a LaTeX document)? Is there an easy way (GUI appreciated) to typeset some LaTeX text over an included photo? Martin p.s. I've already been surfing and procrastinating a lot reading reviews of different apps (xFig, WinFig, Corel Draw, OmniGraffle, Inkscape, ipe, j***Edit, ...) and I'm not really sure what would be the best tool... p.p.s.

Got a problem I hope you all can help out with. As subject says, in outputting Pagemaker file to PDF, the fonts are defaulting to courier. Is there a command to convert them to outlines, or something to that effect, so customer can see in pdf file what it really looks like?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you cannot convert the fonts to outlines in PM, as you can in some other software?

using font generator setvar(font groups, new font name)
I'm trying to determine if you have to create a font for each version and size of the font being used. Ie. Do I have to create seperate fonts for: Courier New, Bold, size 8 and Courier New, italics, size 8 or can I just create one for Courier New size 8 and it recognize it? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you. -Halina ...

converting fonts to outline in InDesign
I'm used to just sending the whole file with all fonts etc, or else a PDF file to the printers, but recently decided on a small job (postcard) to convert fonts to outline before sending it. The PDF proof we got back (softcopy proofing, it's all done online) shows that the text isn't as smooth when PDFd from outline as it would be if PDFd from the original file before the text was converted to outlines (according to my experiments). I don't know if this will make a difference when looking at it printed at 100% (it was a fair bit magnified when I was examining at it), anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to provide the file, and whether this convert to outlines option is pointless? Thanks, -- Katharine All generalisations are false.

GhostPCL converts large font sizes to images in PDF
I've got a PCL file with embedded fonts. GhostPCL does a good job creating a PDF of the file, but text in large font sizes gets converted to images. Text in smaller sizes of the same font stays text in the PDF. In particular, text at 12 points stays text, but text at 14, 15 or 24 points, in the exact same font, is converted to images. So I'm taking a double-hit on space- the embedded font takes up room, and the images take up more room. And, of course, the images aren't searchable. I tried GhostPCL 1.38, 1.40 and 1.41 with the same results (slighty different resulting PDF file sizes). Anyone else see this, and is there anything to do to fix it? I started looking through the source to see if there's some code I can change, but there are so many source files I haven't made much of a dent yet.

ClearType: Does Java AWT use its own font or use the OS's font in displaying text field?
Hi folks, I need to display some ClearType text in a static text field of a GUI window using Java AWT. I heard that Java 2D itself currently does not support ClearType sub-pixel technology. I am wondering if AWT can render font using OS's global font setting, for instance, on Windows XP, the ClearType font can be enabled globally, on Linux, it also has sub-pixel rendering technology can can be enabled OS wide. I am wondering if the Java AWT uses OS's font by default? Furthermore, what shall I do if I want to capture the RGB pixel values of the displayed text and save to harddisk? Th...

organize fonts in font menu
What program can you organize Windows fonts by styles instead of in alphabeticorder when accessing font from a program such as Photoshop or Illustrator? I remember the old days in Mac that I can put different fonts in different folders and they would be grouped together (maybe with suitcase or just the OS). Is there something similar on Windows? It's really time consuming when searching for a font from a long list. Thanks for any info! > What program can you organize Windows fonts by styles instead of in > alphabeticorder when accessing font from a program such as Photoshop > o...

Emerald fonts
Hi there, I've installed the Emerald fonts [1] from CTAN, and have got them working on my system. An example such as the LaTeX Font catalogue's text example [2] works perfectly, but I can't work out for the life of me how to resize the font. I'm using this in the context of: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{emerald} \fontfamily{cmss}\fontsize{12pt}{13pt}\selectfont Here's the body of my text {\ECFAugie Some notes in the magin} Body text continues... \end{document} I wish to use cmss as my default font and Augie enclosed in a group only for short notes. Yet {\ECFAugie \fontsize(10pt) doesn't work as I'd hope} Thanks in advance for any pointers, Stroller.
