Export to PDF On-Premises fonts handling
During document writing, the possibility of using many different fonts can be very important to users.
Using the appropriate font can change the appearance of the document and emphasize its style.
PDF Converter allows you to use Web Fonts, gives you the ability to use standard operating system fonts or use your custom fonts without the need to import them using CSS.
Below is a list of the basic fonts included in the image:
OpenSans-Bold.ttf OpenSans-BoldItalic.ttf OpenSans-ExtraBold.ttf OpenSans-ExtraBoldItalic.ttf OpenSans-Italic.ttf OpenSans-Light.ttf OpenSans-LightItalic.ttf OpenSans-Regular.ttf OpenSans-Semibold.ttf OpenSans-SemiboldItalic.ttf
However, you can add additional fonts to PDF Converter in two ways:
- Use Unix-like PDF-Converter image
docker.cke-cs.com/pdf-converterand mount your fonts directory to it. See Add custom fonts to PDF Converter section.
- Use Windows PDF-Converter image
docker.cke-cs.com/pdf-converter-windowsand mount to it fonts directory from the Windows operating system on which the container is running. See Use Windows fonts in PDF Converter section.
The fonts inside the mounted volume will be installed on the docker image operating system. Only the
.otf font formats are supported. If you want to use other font formats, you need to convert them to the supported format or use these fonts as Web fonts.
Make sure that you can install and use converted fonts on your local machine first, before installing them on the docker container.
