Fonts not subsetting in PDF export

Post by bobdanker » Mon Apr 20, 2015 4:01 am

I created a document using a Windows TTF font Century Gothic, which I copied into the SoftMaker fonts folder. The font appears perfectly on screen, but when I export my document to a PDF, the file size is about 4 times too large because, although the fonts are embedded, they are not subsetting in the PDF.

Font subsetting is only available in Windows, not in Android.

Will this feature be available in a later release of the Android app?

Font subsetting is not supported by Android or Linux because the subsetting code uses APIs only available in Windows. We plan to make this part of the code independent from the operating system, but we are not there yet.
