Free webinar: 10 things you should know about fonts in PDF (but probably don’t)

The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) today announces a new free webinar. While PDF is a wonderful file format for use in Graphic Arts, and many ISO standards are built on its foundations, there are still areas in PDF that continue to be difficult and cause problems. The number one spot often is held by the use of fonts.

The history of the development of fonts for graphic arts software is rich and includes companies such as Adobe, Apple and Microsoft. Fonts are difficult because there are multiple types, and because they contain a lot of specialized terminology and knowledge. Without understanding the basics of fonts, it is difficult to anticipate the problems that might arise from their use.

So how can you better understand how fonts work? What types there are? What they are built out of and what problems that might cause in PDF files? This webinar will attempt to explain the foundation of fonts. It will talk about different font types, their components, but also why those things lead to some of the error messages you might get while using fonts in PDF.

So, join us in this wonderful excursion to the land of fonts. We will have prepared 10 different topics to enlighten you. And of course there will be time for you to answer your questions at the end.

This webinar will be presented by David van Driessche and Christian Blaise. Combined they bring over 50 years of experience working with PDF, automation, workflow and many more arcane subjects.
