Thread subject: sK1 Project :: Text in Postscript
Posted by igor on 16-04-2010 09:48
sK1 font system is fully rewritten and highly different from Skencil font routines. We have used ttf/otf font vs PS1 like in Skencil. So storing text as a real text in PS|PDF formats requires ttf/otf converting on the fly. Also Skencil supports latin-1 encoding only whereas sK1 uses raw Unicode. This feature is also not trivial for PS|PDF formats. Therefore on current development stage we export text into PS|PDF as Bezier curves.
The primary application task is a correct printing output but not reusable PS|PDF files. Of course in future we will provide advanced text support. But this feature requires special release.
