    public final class StandardFont
    extends PDFFont

    A concrete subclass of PDFFont representing the standard 14 fonts guaranteed to exist in all PDF readers.

    The Times, Helvetica and Courier fonts can represent the characters from all of ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-2, ISO-8859-6 and ISO-8859-15 as well as a few other characters, which we believe is enough to render the following languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish, Polish, Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovak, Solvenian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Turkish, Catalan, Basque, Albanian, Rhaeto-Romanic, Sorbian, Faroese, Irish, Scottish, Afrikaans, Swahili, Frisian, Galician, Indonesian/Malay and Tagalog. (This list is based on an old IETF draft here and Roman Czyborras Alphabet Soup pages, and is not definitive or even necessarily accurate). Note the Dutch IJ ligatures (U+0132 and U+0133) and the Catalan "L with dot" (U+0140) characters are missing.

    Maps showing all the characters available in these fonts are included in the "docs" directory, or you can view them here for the main fonts, the Symbol font and ZapfDingbats.

    Since:
    1.0, with additional characters added in 2.7.3

    • Constructor Detail

      • StandardFont

        public StandardFont​(int fonttype)
        Create a new font of the specified type.
        Parameters:
        fonttype - which font to create - one of TIMES, COURIERBOLD etc.
    • Method Detail

      • getType

        public int getType()
        Return the type of font, as supplied to the StandardFont constructor
        Since:
        2.14.1
      • getBaseName

        public String getBaseName()
        Description copied from class: PDFFont
        Return the Base Font Name for this font.
        Overrides:
        getBaseName in class PDFFont
      • getDefaultLeading

        public float getDefaultLeading()
        Description copied from class: PDFFont

        Get the default leading for this font - the preferred distance between two successive baselines of text. Values are a ratio of the font size, and are typically between 1 and 1.3

        Note that the values of the different spacing-between-lines methods have changed - in versions 1.0.4 and earlier this routine normally returned 1 and the spacing was set by the PDFStyle.setTextLineSpacing(float) method. Since 1.1, the values for these two methods are effectively reversed. See the relevant method comments in the PDFStyle class for more information.

        public float getStrikeoutPosition()
        Description copied from class: PDFFont

      • getSubscriptSize

        public float getSubscriptSize()
        Description copied from class: PDFFont

        Get the recommended size of a super/sub script version of this font, as a proportion of the normal font size. Typical value is around 0.6.

        For some fonts (like CJK or barcode fonts) where there is no concept of super or subscript, this value is entirely arbitrary.
