Working with Type1 Fonts | C++
Type 1 font format, also known as PostScript Type 1, is one of the earliest scalable font formats. It was developed by Adobe Systems and was widely used in the printing industry.
This font format was really popular in the past but now more versatile OpenType format has taken its place, yet some systems and printing workflows still stick to using these fonts. Type 1 has the next characteristics like font metrics, font hinting, outline definitions, and multiple master fonts.
Aspose.Font API Solution lets you work with Type1 fonts in your C++ applications. Here are links to help you to:
- Load Type1 font files, extract data from these fonts, and save them back. The basic font loading functionality is provided by Aspose.Font for C++ is fully described in How to load fonts.
- Work with Glyphs and Metrics of Type1 fonts.
- Render text using custom interfaces.
- Convert CFF fonts to another font format. By now, Aspose.Font can only use Type1 fonts as an input format, but not an output one.
The functionality for working with Type 1 fonts within Aspose.Font API for C++ is covered with the Aspose.Font.Type1 namespace that provides classes describing objects related to Type1 Font format.
