Get font type in pdf

Is there a way to get all font type information from a pdf (.net )?
Fontutilities.GetAllfonts() method can not identiy the font type in xobject, such as the example.pdf.
Thank you all!

By font type, do you mean its format? like TTF, OTF, etc.? Please share a bit more details of your requirements so that we can further proceed accordingly.

I mean a list of font type names , the fonts which are used in the pdf, such as “Times New Roman”,


We tested the scenario in our environment using below code snippet and noticed that the API returned Helvetica and ZapfDingbats Fonts:

Document doc = new Document(dataDir + "example.pdf");
Aspose.Pdf.Text.Font[] fonts = doc.FontUtilities.GetAllFonts();
foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Text.Font font in fonts)
 var embedded = font.IsEmbedded;
 var subset = font.IsSubset;
 Console.WriteLine(font.FontName + " embedded = " + embedded);

Are you receiving similar results at your side? Please share the results you are getting and we will log an issue in our issue management system to address it accordingly.

Thank you sir.
You can see from the screenshot, in the example.pdf, it has a font of SimSun, this content is display in the pdf, but this font can not be identified by the method.
Helvetica and ZapfDingbats Fonts are returned as the same.
