Hi Dimitar

 

Thank you for the quick response. Please make sure you are making necessary plan to push it to your next service pack which is scheduled for the middle of the next month. 

There is a strong push from our business to look at other products too. Mid of next month is a month + 5 days from today.

Looking forward to this fix.

 

Thanks & Regards

Subhashini

Hello Subhashini,

I have examined the issue details and I am afraid that this is not scheduled for the upcoming release. The best we can do is to fix it for the next service pack which is scheduled for the middle of the next month. Is this suitable for you?

Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,

Hi Martin

 

Hope you well, Good Day!

I saw from your email that you have placed this to your backlog to fix.

Is there a timeline when this is expected to fix, this fix is very critical for us to launch our product.

Please give us a timeline when to expect this fix, this will help me plan our app launch or explore other options.

 

Appreciate your quick response.

 

Thanks & Regards

Hi Jon,

Adobe Type 1 Font Format is one of the several standard formats for font programs. From the PDF specification: A Type 1 font program is a stylized PostScript program that describes glyph shapes. It uses a compact encoding for the glyph descriptions, and it includes hint information that enables high-quality rendering even at small sizes and low resolutions.

I am afraid I cannot suggest a workaround for this behavior using our API due to the nature of the issue, so please, make sure you are following this item so you can receive updates when its status changes.

Regards,
Martin

Could you give us a ticket to track the progress of this issue? We were hoping to launch our app next month but pdf rendering. Is an essential item for app launch

Maybe a better question is what font do your recommend to avoid crashing?
