Subject ToUnicode table for CID embedded fonts patch available
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 18:44:41 GMT
Hello FOP devs,

I'm currently implementing some automatic system for project
documentation in my company. Since I've used DocBook for my thesis few
years ago successfully with FOP I'm also decided to use FOP for this
task instead some very very expensive commercial alternatives.

Since I needed to embed some custom TTF fonts in my PDF outputs I found
that ToUnicode CMaps were still missing (even the valid places for
implementing that were marked). Maybe it is not crucial, but it is very
nice to be able to copy the text from PDF files, isn't it ?

So I created the patch for FOP 0.20.5 (FOP 0.90alpha1 was running very
unstable for my DocBook documents with latest XSL stylesheets).


I created this code looking how FOray does the trick, but since FOray's
code differs a lot from FOP's one this porting wasn't very straight.

If you have a time please include it into the TRUNK (maybe you can take
a while to port it to 0.90).

I think this is feature that many people wish to see in FOP.
