StampPDF Batch and FDFMerge support Base14, OpenType, TrueType, Type1 and Unicode fonts.
In order to use fonts on your system, the font must be stored in one of the Appligent font directories You can run the command
$ stamppdf –listfonts
$ fdfmerge –listfonts
to see a list of all font names available for stamping. The font name should be used exactly as it is shown in the font list.
There are two font directories.
The default font directory is found under the AppligentHome directory in APDFLX.X.X/Resource/Font.
On Windows, the default AppligentHome directory is in the ProgramData\Appligent directory.
On Unix: the default AppligentHome directory is in /usr/local/appligent
You can also specify an additional font directory, the AP font directory. The path to the AP font directory is saved in an environment variable called AP_FONT_DIR. You will be prompted to enter a font directory during installation.
On Windows: Environment variables can be set on Windows under the System Properties. To display the System Properties, right click on “My Computer” and select properties. On the bottom of the Advanced tab, click the button labeled “Environment Variables”. Under system variables, you will see an entry for AP_FONT_DIR. Select this entry, and click edit. You can then change the
variable’s value to the path of the current font directory. Multiple directories can be added by placing a semicolon in between each directory path.
On Unix: As the other environment variables for StampPDF Batch, AP_FONT_DIR is set in the stamppdf script. The directory set in an environment variable in the script, or be set for the shell.
NOTE: Some of the classic Base14 fonts are no longer included with the application resources. In particular Times and Helvetica. Both of these fonts are automatically substituted; but, may not appear identical to the classic fonts. If the new font appearance are not acceptable; simply use the versions of Times and Helvetica available on your system. This can be done by setting the Font Directories as mentioned above.
