How to replace and map fonts in PCL to PDF Converter software?

Hello

In Version 2.6 of the pcltool.exe there are new options -mapfont and -embedfonts.

pcltool.exe -mapfont "mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

pcltool.exe -mapfont default C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts yes C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts no C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

I unfortunately found no description on the internet about this.

Do you have more information how these options must be used?

Thank you and best regards

Thanks for your message, yes, you can use following command lines to map fonts in generated PDF files,

pcltool.exe -mapfont "mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont default C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts yes C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts no C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

Please look at a simple "mapfont.ini" file at below,

-----------------------------------------------------------------

[MapFonts]
Number=7 ; The number of [MapFontXXX] entries in mapfont.ini file, if Number=3, it is indicate mapfont.ini file contain [MapFont1], [MapFont2], [MapFont3] three entries.

EmbedFont=0 ; 0 is unembed fonts, 1 will embed all fonts in [MapFont1], [MapFont2], [MapFont3], etc. entries.

; Map from BordeauxRomanBoldLetPlain to Arial font name
[MapFont1]
PDFFont=BordeauxRomanBoldLetPlain ; PDF Font in PDF file
WinFont=Arial ; Windows Font

[MapFont2]
