Font Substitution on Linux CentOS for Documents Converted Using Aspose APIs


We are using Aspose.Words, Aspose.Cells, Aspose.Slides licenses for conversion of office document formats to PDF. We run our application on Linux (CentOS) and typically fall into the fonts related problems. Our Linux systems do not have all the fonts typically used in these source documents due to IP issues. We cannot install MS fonts, Monotype fonts directly on the linux systems as it will be breach of intellectual property contracts.
As a result most of the substitution that is happening using the ASPOSE APIs is transparent to us and we are not defining any specific font substitution.
In such a scenario we wish to understand what is the best solution to maintain the fonts as the source document would have it ?

  1. Is there a standard way where font substitution can be managed ? Not always to a single font.
  2. What is the default font used for substitution internally by Aspose for Linux ?
  3. Is there a standard mapping available already for Monotype fonts, Microsoft fonts ?
  4. Any specific best practice to be followed to allow fonts substitution using Aspose APIs for Linux without hampering IP contracts.

Thanks in advance for your feedback !
