PDF Import issue with Fonts

Asked by khovorka on 2007-12-31

 I have to import PDF files on a daily basis from PDF
 drivers such as Adobe PDF printer driver or PrimoPDF and when importing
 one thing I have recently learned as I am starting to work with
 inkscape is that the Font names seem to not get imported properly
 and perhaps this is a known bug. If the font used to print to the
 Driver is for example Times New Roman, when it is imported to SVG in
 inkscape it is converted to the name TimesNewRoman and the missing
 spaces are the main problem in the font name. If I use a text
 editor and do a search and replace on TimesNewRoman and replace it
 with Times New Roman then the font is used properly. I would
 hope this can be easily corrected.

 I have another question and I don't know if there is
 somewhere you can already do this. It would be nice if the X= value could
 be limited to just a single X coordinate rather than a list in my type
 of work so that the text string is a single string in positioning.
 Example: x="-3.296843 1.747382 2.3432245" could
 just be x="-3.296843".
 Is that a possibility?

 Sincerely,

 Kim Hovorka

Hi Kim,

It sounds like you're wishing to report a bug and/or request a new feature. These can be done at http://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape; this answers tool really is just for technical support.

Where are you seeing the x="" bit? The X= displays I know of just show one value.

It's been some time since this question was answered, but as there hasn't been a response it's uncertain if your issue was successfully resolved. I'm marking it Solved, but if the issue still exists please do re-open it and explain where additional help is needed.

Hello,

As to the submission. I did actually also submit it at the
bug area and have not seen it resolved. The issue is basically
with importing form PrimoPDF which is a popular driver for PDF
creation.

Sincerely,
