|0011013||Scribus||public||2012-08-07 12:04||2015-10-03 20:18|
|Fixed in Version||1.5.1svn|
|Summary||0011013: When exporting to PDF the default should be to embed the fonts|
|Description||currently, when first producing a PDF, Scribus tries to embed all fonts and if it fails to outline them.|
if a font is first used after the first export to PDF the default is not to embed nor outline it.
i think that Scribus should work the other way round and keep in the settings which fonts are not embedded (or outlined) and try to embed each font which the user has not explicitly asked to outline or ignore.
that way newly used fonts would automatically be embedded and it would not be more complicated to keep track of the fonts.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I agree completely, at least that either embedding or outlining should be the default - it is very difficult to keep track of which fonts are embedded or not if you're dealing with many weights.
However, why should embedding be the default? Desktop publishing definitely isn't my area of expertise, but I'm inclined to lean to outlining being preferable due to the technical limitation with embedding OTF fonts, or perhaps embed by default and outline as fallback.
Related with :
- 0003825: "Scribus embeds formerly used fonts" even if these are not used anymore
- 0010770: "the preflight verifier should warn if there are fonts that are neither included nor outlined"
if i'm not mistaking, currently, scribus has some ways to decide if it prefers to embed or outline fonts (among those that can be embedded...)
it would be better if scribus would always embed fonts that are embeddable, throwing a warning if it would suggest to outline them.
marking the fonts as "to be embedded" in the preferences (or not to be outlined) would then remove the warning.
||In 1.5.1.svn the font options in PDF export dialog have been modified. The default is now to embed or subset all fonts and the "do not embed" option has to be explicitly choosen for fonts to not be embedded.|
||Changed to 'PDF' Category|
