Working with Type1 Fonts | .NET
Type 1 font format, also known as PostScript Type 1, is the one that was developed by Adobe Systems. It was one of the earliest scalable font formats widely used in the printing industry.
This font format was widely used in the past but has been largely replaced by the more versatile OpenType format, but some systems and printing workflows may still rely on Type 1 fonts. Type 1 is characterized by having font metrics, font hinting, outline definitions, and multiple master fonts.
Aspose.Font for .NET API lets you work with Type1 fonts in your .NET applications. You can:
- Load Type1 font files, extract data from these files and save them back. The basic font loading functionality provided by Aspose.Font for .NET, 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.
- Font classes for supported font formats will teach you the basic functionality and classes, methods, interfaces, and other entities to cover this functionality.
The functionality for working with Type 1 fonts within Aspose.Font API for .NET is covered with the Aspose.Font.Type1 namespace that provides classes describing objects related to Type1 Font format.
