Distill the PDF without embedding that font. installation includes width-only versions of many common Chinese, Japanese, and Korean fonts. If you have some Japanese fonts installed on your computer, they should have the name "Mincho" in the title of the font. If the font name is. i need to generate PDF with Japanese font but i don't how to change. i hope anyone can here give me some good monpaysofchlesspi.ga in advance.

Kozuka Mincho, designed by Masahiko Kozuka, has glyphs designed relatively larger with strokes composed of many straight lines; the typeface design is practical and useful for everyday document production. The design can be characterized by its clarity, brightness, and modern feel. With the development of the two original Japanese typeface families, Adobe could strengthen its position as the leader of DTP in Japan.

Furthermore, it gave Adobe the ability to maintain and develop its own Japanese glyph sets containing glyphs needed in Japan. Adobe and Microsoft made an agreement about the new OpenType font format, and co-developed its specifications. Adobe proceeded with the transition to the new format, and converted its Western and Japanese typefaces into OpenType fonts.

This transition proceeded in parallel with the support of Unicode by major operating systems, and this helped improving the functionality of digital fonts in the international environment. The third issue we needed to tackle was that very few applications supported traditional Japanese typesetting rules. Localized software for typesetting and page layout, which had been originally designed for the American market without good expertise about typesetting in Japanese, usually could not handle Japanese typesetting correctly.

Publishers in Japan needed page layout software that could be used to make well-formed body text composition, advertisement, and commercial printed matter. Adobe chose to solve this issue by developing a Japanese version of InDesign.

As the Japanese text composition functionality of InDesign was improved dramatically, the use of InDesign began to grow in the professional publishing and printing community in Japan — more slowly than we had expected, but steadily.

In this way, the obstacles in disseminating DTP in Japan were gradually eliminated. The font rearrangement of the Composite Font tool also works for Latin glyphs in a Japanese font. Unlike Kozuka Mincho and Kozuka Gothic, in which a stylistically modern tendency had been pursued with their relatively larger average character bounding box size, Ryo Text, Ryo Display, and Ryo Gothic — especially their kana characters — had more traditional and conservative characteristics.

The OpenType font format, whose file format is based on that of TrueType, allows a font to contain both types of glyph procedures: CFF, which is semantically compatible with the charstring operators of Type 1 font format, and TrueType.

OpenType format also provides a wider variety of advanced typographic capabilities, such as many kinds of glyph substitution allowing the selection of a single glyph from among multiple glyph shape variations, automatic conversion of a series of glyphs into a pre-composed ligature glyph, and switching of metrics information of each glyph to an alternative one.

Operating systems and application software started to support OpenType fonts in the early s, when Windows , Windows XP, and Mac OS X were released, and it became possible for OpenType fonts to be used in various computer environments, with continual improvements made up to the present day. Ryoko Nishizuka later designed Kazuraki, a typeface based on the handwriting style of 12th century Japanese writing master Fujiwara-no Teika.

It is an unusual typeface, because it was designed as a fully-proportional Japanese typeface containing glyphs, each of which had its own escapement width, unlike ordinary traditional Japanese typefaces containing mainly fixed-width Japanese and ideographic glyphs. Each coded character can have variations, which are used in practice to display or print the coded character to which a unique character code is assigned.


Even if there are multiple glyphs that can represent one coded character, whichever glyph is used, it is regarded as the same single character. Therefore, it is impossible to distinguish and specify any one of the glyphs from each other only by using the character code assigned to the character.

Still, there are a wide variety of cases where such distinction and specification of particular glyphs become necessary. Or in academic publishing, books might require glyphs used in historic manuscripts, books, and documents. Publishing has traditionally called for a wide variety of glyphs and glyph variations.

It uses a sequence of two standard character codes: an ideographic base character code, and a variation selector to specify a glyph variation, which is also a standard character code.

It includes glyphs that cannot be specified with any standard character codes.

An encoding just specifies which sequence of bytes in a text maps to which glyph ID in the font. Languages are not really involved at this point. For all that really matters is not the encoding, but the characters that are actually used in the document.

Well, Adobe Reader XI changed all that. It now confuses our customers, prompting them to install an Asian language pack for documents that do not have a single eastern character in them.

To avoid this, it appears that we will have to start avoiding CID fonts for western documents. This means that we will have to investigate each piece of text, check whether the characters fit within a particular western single-byte code page, and output a TrueType font description with that single byte encoding. It also means that we may have to output multiple of these font descriptions into a document if not all characters fit within a single western single-byte code page.

It seems like an awkward step to take, now that Unicode should actually have solved all these code page troubles many years ago.

Embedding prevents font substitution when readers view or print the file, and ensures that readers see the text in its original font.

This can be done in various ways. Even though the pdf has only Chinese - pdf forces the user to install both chinese and korean language packs for the first time.

You need to have a Japanese designer do this for you.
