Font issues in different PDF viewers

Postby kerimucci on Wed Feb 21, 2018 6:37 am


I am producing content for HTML5 and PDF output using a custom font called Plain. I installed the fonts and added them to my Flare project's Resources folder, which I am pointing to in my CSS.

As far as I understand, this is all I need to do to use a custom font. (I was hoping someone could confirm this.)

The issue I am having is that my content looks different in every PDF viewer I have tried (Acrobat, Chrome, Edge). It looks best in Edge, but in Chrome, my bold text is almost unreadable because it is so bold. In Acrobat, my bold text barely looks bold at all. I am not sure what to do and need to get this project in good shape this week.

Is this a common issue other people have encountered? It would be great to know what other people are doing.
