Subject: Characterspacing in Truetype-Fonts broken
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 956b
I tried to put some text with a truetype-font on a pdf-document via PDF::API2. Now, the character spacing seems to be broken. The $cfont-object, despite its name here is the PDF::API2-TTF-Font-Object. I wrote the text with the following code: my $dev=$self->pdfDevice; $dev->save(); $dev->textstart(); $dev->fillcolor($font->fontColor); $dev->font($cfont,$font->fontSize); my %trans_opts=( -translate => [$x,$y+$off] ); $dev->transform(%trans_opts); $dev->text($text); $dev->textend(); $dev->restore(); The spacing between the characters is much too wide. In addition to that, calculating the size of a string with my $width=$cfont->width($text) also seems to give wrong values. You can see the problems in the given document: The Truetype fonts are the three last ones in section 1.1.1 I run perl at a kubuntu dapper drake linux, tried it with the PDF::API2 of the distribution and with a fresh one from CPAN. My perl is a v5.8.7 Christian
