Re: [hylafax-users] R: Re: How to use "ARIAL" font in hylafax

Yea when you have a font fully included in a ps file it's a huge block of data easily recognizable if you have it open in a text editor. Most applications that can create pdf's in doze can include the fonts used with an option set during the export. Use pdftops in linux to get your ps.

The problem is that when I create the ps file (using a postscript printer under windows and saving the file it creates), I see the file Icreated that has chars written in Arial font, but when I send the file to hylafax server and I send fax, the result is different from what I saw before. Why the hylafax server change my ps file?

This sounds to me like the creation of the PS file on doze doesn't include the arial font in the file, and instead only references it. Fine as long as the font is available when the PS file is rendered, you'll get a substitution of sorts otherwise. If that's correct, you have 2 options: fix your PS creation on doze to include all used fonts, or make the missing fonts available to the PS or PDF rendering process which gets invoked by hylafax on the Linux machine (e.g. install the MS cire fonts). Neither is a hylafax problem.
