Wished features for 0.24
- Resetting form fields
- No code, still doesn't need review :D
There is currently very little documentation. Poppler comes with multiple frontends (APIs). For the glib and Qt4 frontends there is some reference.
C++: https://oinksoft.com/doc/poppler/cpp/ (rebuilt nightly from git)
Suggested Fontconfig font substitutions
Poppler is using fontconfig to do the font searching on the system for fonts that are not embedded into the pdf files. This is a list of recommended font substitutions that distributions/users should have in their fontconfig configuration
Font A -> Font B Symbol -> Standard Symbols L ZapfDingbats -> Dingbats
To do the substitution use
<alias> <family>Font A</family> <accept><family>Font B</family></accept> </alias>
If that does not work for you use
<match target="pattern"> <test name="family"> <string>Font A</string> </test> <edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="same"> <string>Font B</string> </edit> </match>
but what you should do is warn your distribution to improve their default fontconfig configuration
Both fonts come in the Free Type1 URW fonts package and is very probable distributions already ship it.
This list probably should go somewhere into the tarball when it's more complete.
