Subject [jira] [Commented] (FOP-2354) [PATCH] Subset support for Type 1 fonts
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 10:34:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2354?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13998873#comment-13998873

Vincent Hennebert commented on FOP-2354:

bq. Why did you change the default not to subset? This isn't consistent with True Type fonts
which are subset by default.

The difference is that TrueType subsetting has always been available for as far as I can remember.
Subsetting Type 1 fonts by default will have an impact on performance that users might no
expect, and not be happy with. I'd leave Type 1 subsetting disabled for now and flag it as
experimental. Once we have gathered enough experience with it and are confident that it's
stable and efficient, we can always switch it on.
