ABCpdf will allow you to use any valid TrueType or Type 1
If you are having problems accessing a particular font, try
disabling the ABCpdf font protection functionality. However, note
that you should not embed and redistribute fonts unless you have

ABCpdf maintains a font cache. This means that for ABCpdf to
pick up on a newly installed font, you will need to restart any
processes that are using ABCpdf.
Alternatively, you can pass the path to your font file to the
AddFont or EmbedFont method. This will automatically load the font
file. Do not move the font file after doing this - ABCpdf relies on
fonts staying in place.
Sometimes permissions are placed on individual font files which
may restrict access from restricted permission accounts such as ASP
Occasionally, TrueType fonts are corrupt or non-standard. This
can cause problems for ABCpdf (which will refuse to recognize them)
or Acrobat (which will refuse to use a font embedded in the PDF).
However, this type of problem is relatively infrequent and tends to
be restricted to unusual fonts such as bar-codes.
If you hit a problem you think is related to a corrupt or
non-standard font, please mail us the font and we'll see what we
