Programmatic way to detect the font issues for Metafile to Raster conversion

Hi Anup,

While looking at the output of font information, it looks like that Fonts “Symbol” and “System” is still missing on the system or somehow these fonts are skipped from recognition. Please, do me a favor by again making it sure that missing fonts have been copied on the server (by copying from working server and pasting on the problematic server). After words run the addFontsFolder() routine and share the output with us.

In the mean while we will discuss the issue with product team and further look deep into it.

Hi,
The steps what we did below:

Step 1 :
copy and paste below ttf file under our “/.fonts” from our working linux environment.
1. symbol.ttf
2. system.ttf
3. Times New Roman.ttf


Step 2 : ran below command
Command :- fc-cache -fv

Code :


File wmfFile = new File(filePath);

filePath = filePath.replaceAll(".wmf", “.png”);

File pngFile = new File(filePath);

FontSettings.addFontsFolder("/joyoflea/.fonts");


String[] allFont = asposeImageConverter.getAllFont();
String[] usedFont = asposeImageConverter.getUsedFontList(wmfFile);
String[] missFont = asposeImageConverter.getMissingFontList(wmfFile);

try{

WmfMetafileImage metafile = new WmfMetafileImage(wmfFile.getAbsolutePath());
metafile.save(pngFile.getAbsolutePath(), new PngOptions());

}catch(Exception exception){
exception.printStackTrace();
logger.error(" ConvertWMTOPNG : "+exception);
}

Then we used the sample WMF file provided by you and executed the following lines of code respectively:
String[] usedFont = asposeImageConverter.getUsedFontList(wmfFile);
Output:
---------------- Times New Roman Symbol System ---------------

String[] missFont = asposeImageConverter.getMissingFontList(wmfFile);
Output:
---------------- Times New Roman System ---------------

It was clearly shown that following fonts were missing:

  1. Times New Roman
  2. System

There are two ways to install the missing fonts

  1. Using Software Update Center
  2. Download the TTF font file and then use install option by opening the file and accessing the “install” button on the upper right end.

We tried both ways and executed the code snippet:

String[] missFont = asposeImageConverter.getMissingFontList(wmfFile);
Output:
---------------- Times New Roman System ---------------

The output shown that issue was still there and was not resolved. We accessed the FONT directory on Windows operating system i.e. C:\Windows\Fonts, copied the required font file(s) and pasted on the problematic operating system. We carried out the above mentioned process to install the missing fonts. We again executed the following lines of code respectively:

String[] missFont = asposeImageConverter.getMissingFontList(wmfFile);
Output:
----------------

String[] allFontList = com.aspose.imaging.fileformats.metafile.FontSettings.getAllFonts();

From the output it is now clear that there are no more missing fonts and getAllFont method returns complete list of fonts including the missing ones. That said, we have witnessed the font’s presence in the LiberOffice as well. Screen shots have been attached for your reference.

Hope the above information helps. Try the above solution at your end and feel free to contact us in case you have further comments or queries.

Hi,

Its working now by installing system font at our problematic server.
