I'll look into that JIRA, thanks. The pdfbox error in the original message below shows the class and method producing this message in the Java log.
Digging a little deeper, this is caused by the pdfbox method: org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDFontDescriptorDictionary.getFontFile2() This is trying to read the "FontFile2" key which was written by FOP. org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFFontDescriptor.setFontFile() One of these is missing something. -----Original Message----- From: Andreas Lehmkuehler [mailto:andr...@lehmi.de] Sent: Monday, September 12, 2011 3:30 PM To: us...@pdfbox.apache.org Cc: fop-us...@xmlgraphics.apache.org Subject: Re: How to make embedded font readable?

I guess it is an issue with PDFBox, but without a sample PDF it's only a guess. Please create an issue on JIRA  and attach a sample pdf to it. > Sep 12, 2011 9:18:12 AM > org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDCIDFontType2Font getawtFont > INFO: Can't read the embedded font EAAAAD+LucidaSans-Typewriter BR Andreas Lehmkühler  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX
