When I open a DWF with ttf fonts in it in Design Review (at least versions 2010 and 2011), then save the DWF to a DWFx, all the ttf font turn into rectangles...
This only seems to be the case when working on a 64-bit Vista OS, doing the same on a 32-bit XP system saves to a DWFx correctly.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to convert DWF to DWFx and not loose the ttf font?
Thank you for your question.
Both DWF and DWFx support embedded fonts; however DWF can also support non-embedded fonts which are just name tag marked this font. If we want to convert DWF to DWFx we need convert these non-embedded fonts to embedded ones. We look for this font from current system through its name. If it cannot be found we will match a best one according to this font’s properties. Indeed some fonts cannot support embedded very well so that leads to something wrong during font converting.
Please upload your DWF file into this thread for us to investigate in more detail
We have found the reason; it is caused by one function from Microsoft used to create the embedded font. I have created a defect in our database to track this issue and started to consult with developers from MS for this issue.
Please let me know if you have any further question.
I will try my best to resolve this issue. Once it is fixed by Microsoft or there is any workaround I will let you know.
