Subject [jira] [Commented] (FOP-2826) PDF/A validation error: CIDset in subset font is incomplete
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2018 14:45:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2826?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16693322#comment-16693322

Chris Bowditch commented on FOP-2826:

I don't see this as a bug. You ask FOP to create a subset font, but PDF/A requires the complete
font. That's why you get the error validating in PDF/A. The solution is to embed the entire
font instead of subset. The workaround mentioned by Simon is the solution not workaround.
How else can this be solved?

>                 Key: FOP-2826
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2826
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.3
>            Reporter: Radek Bidlo
>            Priority: Major
>         Attachments: samples.zip
> When the PDF/A documents generated by FOP *with the font embedding-mode="subset"* are
validated for PDF/A conformance by validators based on Adobe Preflight, these validators report
the following error:
> *CIDset in subset font is incomplete*
> More precisely, the attached samples are the PDF/A-1b documents, but the same issue occurs
also for other PDF/A variants.
> This issue occurs also in PDF/A documents generated from previous versions of FOP.
> Please see the attached [^samples.zip], where you can find:
> - TTF fonts used for the samples
> - FOP configuration files with both the full and subset embedding mode
> - sample FO input file for FOP
> - resulting PDF/A documents subset.pdf (of which validation reports the error) and full.pdf
(which is without errors)
> This issue complicates the document processing, where the PDF/A conformance validation
is performed and the no error result is expected to allow further processing.
