Describe the problem

Weird issue when exporting PDF with embedded Font Awesome. I am using Affinity Designer for exporting. Illustrator works fine. Here's the weird part, it only happens on one of my PCs.
Works fine on the other one. Have a look below on screenshots.

The other PC with the same OTFs installed and same software Affinity Designer exports it just fine.
It seems like some weird encoding (Custom vs Identity-H).

What did you expect?

I would want PDF font embedding working correctly.

What version and implementation are you using?

Version: 5.3.1
OS: Win10
Affinity Designer:

Reproducible test case

Affinity Designer on Windows.

Bug report checklist

  •  Reinstalling Affinity Designer
  •  Reinstalling Font Awesome fonts
  •  Clearing Windows 10 font cache

Preview & info

This is PDF font info generated with PC 1
Font info 1
Font preview 1
And this is PC 2 where it exports just fine
Font info 2
Font preview 2

Thank you in advance.

Hi shatter0000,

Have you tried this on the latest 1.7.1 update? If it is still an issue could you be attach the document you are exporting, along with a copy of FontAwesome fonts from both PC 1 AND PC 2 please? Also what locale are both machines set to?
