Abstract

AFP2PDF-INCORROUT AFP FONTS NOT EMBEDDED IN PDF

Error Description

If an *AFPDS printer file or spooled file reference AFP fonts  
via the CDEFNT or FNTCHRSET parameter or keyword and TS1 is used
to generate PDF output, the AFP fonts will not be converted to  
Type 1 fonts and embedded into the PDF.  Instead, the transform
will map the font to a PDF font reference.                      
                                                               
Note that if the QCTXPDF2, QCTXPDFMB2, or QCTXPDFWT2 *WSCST    
objects are used, this is the normal behavior.                  

Problem Summary

If an *AFPDS printer file or spooled file reference AFP fonts  
via the CDEFNT or FNTCHRSET parameter or keyword and TS1 is used
to generate PDF output, the AFP fonts will not be converted to  
Type 1 fonts and embedded into the PDF.  Instead, the transform
will map the font to a PDF font reference.                      
                                                               
Note that if the QCTXPDF2, QCTXPDFMB2, or QCTXPDFWT2 *WSCST    
objects are used, this is the normal behavior.                  

Problem Conclusion

The makeconv binary is used to convert the code points to      
Unicode for use with the embedded font.  This binary uses      
several ICU libraries which changed in v7.3.  The TS1 product  
will now include these ICU libraries so that a consistent      
version is always available.
