Ralf Hauser commented on PDFBOX-3604:

I guess the underlying problem is that PDFBOX asks the programmer to declare 
the font twice:

1) first when loading to the PDDocument  and
2) and possibly multiple times again when setting the font to the 
PDPageContentStream which itself was instantiated with a reference to 
PDDocument too

so instead of throwing an exception - *programmer friendly* would probably be 
that if "setFont()" is used without the font already being present in the doc, 
just automatically do a "late addition to doc" ?

>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: FontBox
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.3
>         Environment: debian stable, java8
>            Reporter: Ralf Hauser
> http://www.fonts2u.com/code2000.font is read in an inputstream and then made 
> to a PDFont.
> If I make this a static PDFont variable to only once read it from disk and 
> use it more than once, it only works with the first document I create and 
> thereafter I get the below error.
> Wouldn't it be nice to have this idempotent or at least with a reset() method?
