Available fonts

Most fonts can be embedded using WEFT, however some fonts have been designated as 'no embedding' fonts by their designers. Other fonts may be rejected by the utility because problems have been identified.

The 'View Available fonts' option presents information taken from your personal font database in a tabular form.
