PDF render garbled text

Recommended Posts

The PDF export in 1.73 seems to be buggered.  Page renders fine onscreen, PDF export fills the document with strange symbols.  Print to PDF  works fine.  Document is sensitive, so can't post screen grabs here, but would be happy to send to tech support

You can upload the screenshots, file and fonts used here - Can you include a screenshot of the PDF export options you used as well

Also just noticed this. Doesn't happen all the time. For me it's specifically Crimson Text, Roman that goes all gobbledegook. Italics, Semibold, Semibold Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic all work fine. Just tried to create a test file to upload and it worked completely fine. Same font.

Crimson Text has problems with how the name fields are configured.
Everything is in the style group fields and the Typographic Family fields are empty.
Style groups should only have: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic
Crimson Text also has Roman, Semibold, Semibold Italic in there.
This is confusing APub and causing font corruption.
It also confuses the heck out of LibreOffice.
So I made a version with fixed names which works properly in LibreOffice - Crimson Text LO
Just tested and it also works properly in APub 1.8 beta.
I left "Roman" in the Typographic Style field where is is OK.

Crimson.Text.LO.(fixed.names).7z

Try those fonts.
My guess is that will solve your issue.

Interesting. Will give it a try. Although, as in my screen grab above Crimson Text works fine in one document, and not in the other.
