Property Value

Type Description

A string list representing the collection of font families that are not embedded in a document.


Non-embedded fonts can contain only 256 unique Unicode characters each.

Glyph shaping does not work for non-embedded fonts.

The font names can be used with postfixes in the following format: “FontName,Postfix” (e.g., “Arial,Bold”). There are three postfixes: “Bold”, “Italic”, and “BoldItalic”.

If the postfix is specified, only fonts with the corresponding style will not be embedded in a document.

The white spaces in font names are ignored.


This example shows how to use PDF Graphics API to create a document with graphics content.

        // Render a page with graphics.
        processor.RenderNewPage(PdfPaperSize.Letter, graph);

    // Draw text lines on the page.
