[Resolved]SimSun font not being substituted when converting to PDF. Is it reading from embedded fonts?

I have a Document that contains Simplified Chinese in the ‘SimSun’ font . The document is attached
(Chinese Simplified 1.doc).

I also set the fonts source to a folder called ‘FinalFonts’ That I’ve attached.

In addition I’ve set up a warning callback.

The callback error says
Font substitution: Font substitutes: ‘Times New Roman’ replaced with ‘Liberation Serif’.
Font substitution: Font substitutes: ‘Verdana’ replaced with ‘Raleway’.

SimSun isn’t substituted and it isn’t it in the fonts folder.
How is SimSun in the final produced PDF?

Why didn’t aspose search for a substitution?

I am using Word 2016 so I don’t see how the font would be embedded in the original DOC, can you confirm that it was or wasn’t embedded?

Nevermind, I realized the SimSun font was available in my folder
