Outlining PDF Fonts in your C# Applications

Outlining PDF Fonts in your C# Applications

This blog describes the steps to draw all the pages of an original PDF with text font information to a temporary document. During this drawing process, the text is drawn as graphics paths. Once the newly drawn document is saved, the PDF will not contain any fonts because all the glyphs from the original PDF will be drawn/rendered as graphic paths making the text into an image.

Has this ever happened to you or one of your clients? - An important PDF is sent to a print supplier for duplication and ultimately mass distribution. A week goes by while the supplier gets your job in the queue. Then, they call and say the file is unusable because when they open it in their system, all the fonts have changed, and the file is now virtually unreadable.

The deadline is quickly approaching. Normally redoing these documents would be a very time-consuming process, potentially pushing a long-awaited release of information and sales material because the print provider asked to 'remove the fonts.' Though the deadline is looming, you understand the issue; they don't have the same fonts installed in their system like the system that created the PDF in the first place. Lucky for your team, you have GcPdf as part of your tool kit, so you can quickly and easily convert the file by outlining the fonts. Or, in other words, putting them into glyphs, ensuring the document looks the same as its original format, without having to worry about fonts being installed at your print provider.
