PDF TrueType Font Extractor is a program based on command line. It is able to extract fonts embedded in PDF files and save as CFF (Compact Font Format) and AFM (Adobe Font Metrics). To TTF (TrueType) fonts, it can extract and save them to font format files and GIF images.

There are many splendid fonts created by font artist, and some of the fonts are free for reuse. If you find a good font used in a PDF file but you do not know the font's name and search it on the Internet, you may use PDF TrueType Font Extractor which can extract fonts of PDF files and make them reusable in font file formats or GIF image format.

The program is portable and need not install. Download the package and unpack it into your disk, you will be able to run it from a command prompt window.

A basic practical command line usage is as the follow,

pdffont.exe fonts.pdf font_folder

This command line is used for extracting fonts embedded in fonts.pdf and saving the font files to directory font_folder. With these commands, the fonts will be saved in font formats, such as TTF, CFF and AFM. This cannot save those fonts that are not reusable as font files. To extract these fonts, you may use the option -img as follow.

pdffont.exe -img fonts.pdf font_folder

This command line will render the extracted fonts to GIF images and save the images to the specified directory. This will create many files in the directory and make the directory in a mess. You can extract the fonts of specific pages to reduce the amount of created files in the destination directory. The command line is,

pdffont.exe -f 3 -l 3 -img fonts.pdf font_folder

This will only extract the fonts used in page 3, and reduce the amount of created GIF images.

Note: before using the extracted fonts, please make sure the fonts are legally licensed to be used.
