Monotype Type Drawing Office - Patricia Saunders An italic typeface made in the style of the early Italian cursives, as exemplified by the work of the writing master Ludovico degli Arrighi in the sixteenth century. The capitals are of swash design, with characteristic flourishes, designed primarily for use as initial letters. Corsiva can be used for short text passages in advertising but is best used to add sparkle to invitations, greeting cards and menus, and to give a sense of occasion to certificates and awards. You have obtained this typeface software either directly from Monotype or together with software distributed by one of Monotype s licensees.
Adobe Western 2[ edit ] It includes a basic character set containing upper and lowercase letters, figures, accented characters, and punctuation. Adobe CE[ edit ] Fonts with an Adobe CE character set also include the Western writing font necessary to support the following central European languages: It also includes support for a number of extensions to Western writing font, which contain characters used mainly in the Hong Kong locale.
Adobe-Japan2[ edit ] It was originally as an implementation of JIS X character set standard and the Macintosh extensions, but with the introduction of Adobe-Japan1 supplement 6 Adobe-Japan standard, Adobe-Japan became obsolete. This is the standard character set in most PostScript Type 1 fonts from Adobe.
It was developed to support pictographic East Asian character sets, as these comprise many more characters than the Latin, Greek and Cyrillic writing systems. CID-keyed fonts often reference "character collections," static glyph sets defined for different language coverage purposes.
Although in principle any font maker may define character collections, Adobe's are the only ones in wide usage. Each character collection has an encoding which maps Character IDs to glyphs.
Each member glyph in a character collection is identified by a unique character identifier CID. Such CIDs are generally supplemental to other encodings or mappings such as Unicode.
Character collections are uniquely named by registry, ordering and supplement, such as "Adobe-Japan The so-called "ordering" gives the purpose of the collection for example, "Japan1". The supplement number such as 6 indicates incremental additions: The Adobe-Japan collection is glyphs, while Adobe-Japan is 23, glyphs.
CID-keyed fonts may be made without reference to a character collection by using an "identity" encoding, such as Identity-H for horizontal writing or Identity-V for vertical.
Such fonts may each have a unique character set, and in such cases the CID number of a glyph is not informative; generally the Unicode encoding is used instead, potentially with supplemental information.
CID-keyed fonts internally have their character sets divided into "rows," with the advantage that each row may have different global hinting parameters applied. This would seem desirable for some such fonts because of the hinting advantages.
However, according to Adobe, much of the software infrastructure applications, drivers, operating systems makes incorrect assumptions about CID-keyed fonts in ways that makes such fonts behave badly in real-world usage.
ClearScan does not replace the fonts with system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versionsbut uses these newly created custom fonts.
The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file this is mandatory. It is designed to use less storage space than Type 1 fonts, by using operators with multiple arguments, various predefined default values, more efficient allotment of encoding values and shared subroutines within a FontSet family of fonts.
It is the usual approach to representing a Type 1 font within PDF. Multiple master fonts contain one or more "masters" — that is, original font styles, e.
In addition to file format change, there are other changes: All alphabetic fonts had 17 additional characters included: Symbol substitution was a scheme used on Mac OS to deal with the fact that the standard "ISO-Adobe" character set omitted certain characters which were part of the MacRoman character set.
When one of these 14 characters was typed in a Type 1 font with standard encoding, both ATM and the printer driver would get a generic glyph in the Times style from the Symbol font. In the OpenType conversion, these characters were built into every font, getting some degree of font-specific treatment weight and width.
Fonts that had unkerned accented characters had additional kerning to deal with accented characters. Font families that included separate Type 1 expert fonts or Cyrillic fonts have these glyphs built into the "base font" in their OpenType counterparts.
Multiple master fonts were converted to individual OpenType fonts; each font consisting of a former Multiple Master instance.A small but growing number of designers and institutions are creating typefaces for the public domain.
These designers are participating in the broader open source and copyleft movements, which seek to stimulate worldwide creativity via a collective information commons..
