Font Properties

Each font within the document can have its own properties. Below is a description of the properties that are associated with each font.

(Embedded) - An embedded font has the entire font stored within the PDF document. This means that if the font is not available on the system the text will still be displayed correctly.

(Embedded Subset) - An embedded subset font has portions of the font stored within the PDF. This means that not every character available in the font will be available. While the original document text will be displayed correctly, if any characters are added or modified that are not one of the embedded characters they may not show up correctly within the document

Type - The complete font type name

Encoding - The character encoding used in the font
