Title: Several Problems with pdf-forms
Post by: maxbue on May 08, 2012, 08:12:58 pm
Hey there,

first of all, sorry for my english, i'm not a native speaker.
I use scribus 1.4.1 on a windows 64bit system.
I'm working on an invoice-form for a customer and during that i was confronted with several problems.


If I right-click on a pdf-textfield i can choose the fonts for pdf 1.3 but they are strongly limited. Why's that?
Is scribus only using the fonts that are chosen in this dialog if I export as pdf 1.3?

I would be very thankful if you could help me with this.

Regards,
Max

I think those problems (at least 1 and 2) are due to limitations of the PDF Form specification, so they would be there even if you created the forms with Adobe Acrobat. The ability to use custom fonts for form fields is fairly new, older PDF versions only allowed to use the core PDF fonts.

For 3, did you try zooming in or printing the PDF? It might just be a display issue.
