Clear fonts default set by Aspose

Hi support,

I’m trying to replace some font by another (Arial>Arimo, Symbol> SymbolNeu, Calibri>Carliton etc…).

I add font substitution with :
FontSettings.getDefaultInstance().addFontSubstitutes(“Calibri”, “Carlito”);

But aspose already replace Carlibri by Liberation Sans in first position(I’ve checked with FontSettings.getDefaultInstance().getFontSubstitutes(“Calibri”))

How can I define myself font substitution ?

I’ve another issue, I define as mentioned above subsitute Symbol by SymbolNeu and callback notified me “Font ‘Symbol’ has not been found. Using ‘Geneva’ font instead. Reason: default font setting.” (I define default font with FontSettings.getDefaultInstance().setDefaultFontName(“Geneva”)). SymbolNew folder was added to folder font source (without recursivity) because it was not in /usr/share/fonts.

Any ideas ?

SymbolNeu could be find here : https://github.com/powerline/fonts/tree/master/SymbolNeu

Thanks in advance,

Florian Mélot

Hi Florian,

Thanks for your inquiry. Aspose.Words tries to find a font on the file system and then find it in embedded fonts in the original document. Please refer to the following article:

If you still face problem, please attach the following resources here for testing:

  • Your input Word document
  • Please create a simple Java application (source code without compilation errors) that helps us to reproduce your problem on our end and attach it here for testing.

Hi Tahir,

Thanks for your answer.

I’ve uploaded on mega a zip which contains java class and all fonts used in this case. (I haven’t attached class HandleDocumentWords, you could delete line 77).

Original file (docx) was attached to the first post.

Hi Florian,

Thanks for sharing the detail. We have tested the scenario using latest version of Aspose.Words for Java 16.8.0 and have not found the shared issue. Please use Aspose.Words for Java 16.8.0.

We suggest you please read following documentation link.
How to Install True Type Fonts on Linux

To replace a font by another, it’s necessary to specify it with :

FontSettings.getDefaultInstance().setFontSubstitutes(“Calibri”, [“Carlito”]);

If add method is used, aspose took his own substitution.

Why font substitution defined by user has the lowest priority ?

Regards,

Florian

Hi Florian,

Thanks for your inquiry. We have not found the shared issue with addFontSubstitutes and setFontSubstitutes methods. We suggest you please use latest version of Aspose.Words for Java 16.10.0 and read following documentation link.
