PDF Export Font not included

Post by Eskimo » Fri Dec 01, 2017 1:27 pm


The chart is exported as pdf. Pdf openend in SumatraPDF and there is no font, as shown in the image SumatraPDF.png. The legend is set in the code to an arial font but is not shown in the pdf. The chart exported as png shows the font as in the image image.png. Any suggestions how to get a proper pdf export ?

Following code is used:

Code: Select all

ChartFont chartFont = new ChartFont(MyTeeChart.Chart, new Font("Arial", 12));
					MyTeeChart.Chart.Legend.Font = chartFont;
					MyTeeChart.Chart.Export.Image.PDF.Document().Fonts.Add(new PDFFontListEntry(chartFont));

I'm afraid TeeChart's PDF export does not write out fonts in an embedded format in the PDF files it produces. However, you will be able to export to an image (jpeg, png etc.) with the desired font and then embed this image file in your PDF document.
