File display in pdf file with missing fonts

Recommended Posts

I wish Affinity products could generate the correct display for a placed pdf file by overlooking missing fonts like what happens in Adobe products. I would want to believe that since the placed file is a proxy, there really shouldn't be a need for the placed file to display using substituted fonts.

I believe what you are asking for is called "pdf passthrough".  It is one of many feature requests to appear in these forums.  I think the hope is that it will eventually be included in both Designer and Publisher.
