Not embed fonts saving as pdf


Level 4

Hi everyone

Just a quick question.. before I start to dig myself.

We save our LC design forms in the source format .xdp. When we publish them we select File > saveAs and choose dynamic pdf.

but LC designer will always embed fonts in the pdf. We have to open our pdf in LC designer a remove 'embed font' under File > Form properties (this can only be fone to a pdf, so we need an additional save as ZZZZZZZ).


Anyone have solution on setting LC designer ud to not embed fonts when saving and xdp to dynamic pdf? is the a config file or registry setting to edit?

help is very welcome

hi Jyske,

What you can do is to add the following line in the .tds (template) files that Livecycle uses:

<?templateDesigner SavePDFWithEmbeddedFonts 0?>

and this just before the closing </template> element in the xml source.

You find these templates in the <Livecycle Designer Installation folder>\EN\Templates
