class HexaPDF::Type::FontType0

Parent

Represents a composite PDF font.

Composites fonts wrap a descendant CIDFont and use CIDs to identify glyphs. A CID can be encoded in one or more bytes and an associated CMap specifies how this encoding is done. Composite fonts also allow for vertical writing mode and support TrueType as well as OpenType fonts.
