Form.FillField throwing System.ArgumentException: Invalid font name

I have some PDFs that when I call

TempForm.FillField("somefield", "value");

it throws the exception

Is that expected if the PDF has embedded fonts?

Hi Jay,

Can you please share the source PDF document so that we can test the scenario at our end. In case there is any font already embedded in PDF, Aspose.Pdf for .NET must not through any exception. Please ensure that you are using the correct field name when filling the data. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Attached is a PDF that shows the problem. If you try to set any form field on that PDF, the exception is thrown.

Thanks

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 31508) have been fixed in this update.
