I have some questions concerning printing using specific fonts. While I cannot find any documentation dealing specifically with this area, if there is documentation dealing with this subject directly please point me to it.
My application allows for the printing of the current view and I would like to use a certain font which is not available at system level on the machine running the application. If I embed a font, is this font only useable on controls in the view, or can I create a print job and use the font on the printer? Or does the printer have to "know" the font as well?
Where should I embed my font? In the ActionScript file which loads the print form or in the print form itself?
A printed page is just a Flash display list tree. The vectors or a bitmap
of the vectors from the embedded font is sent to the printer. The printer
doesn't know anything about the font.
I would embed the font in the print form.
Thanks Alex, just what I needed to know. -Scott
