Using Global Fonts in Designer


Built-In and Google Fonts

Designer and the DynamicPDF API supports Google Fonts and the 14 core Adobe fonts by default and there is no need to add them as a global font.

Built-In Fonts

The 14 fonts present in most PDF viewers do not require embedding.

  • Courier, Courier Bold, Courier Oblique, and Courier Bold-Oblique
  • Helvetica, Helvetica Bold, Helvetica Oblique and Helvetica Bold-Oblique
  • Times Roman, Times Bold, Times Italic, and Times Bold-Italic
  • Symbol
  • Zapf Dingbats

Google Fonts

DynamicPDF API also supports Google fonts, including Unicode character sets with their respective fonts. The Google font selector in Designer, or IntelliSense, makes selecting these fonts easy.
