BePDF no longer renders files

BePDF no longer renders files. Could this have to do with the removal of the BitStream font? I'm pretty sure BePDF still worked at hrev27353.

Can you please check if hrev27587 makes any difference? What document did you try to open? I have some documents that use common windows fonts and don't include them in the document and don't specify a substitution font. In that case BePDF cannot render them. You should get those warnings in the warnings dialog though.

I'll include more info shortly and try 27587.

Also, if Bitstream was removed and it's pretty popular, shouldn't it be symlinked to another popular font?

hrev27587 makes no difference. As I said, the files I'm testing worked previously with BePDF and Haiku,

They are:

Practical File System Design Programming the Be Operating System (available on Senryu).

The output mostly spat out code lines. I did manage a screen shot where a different message popped up.

See attached please.

I haven't tried to reproduce it before, but I cannot reproduce this with hrev27621 with the aforementioned document. Can you please retry if it works for you now?

If it still doesn't I must assume there is something wrong at your end.

Hi Axel,

I was using v0.9.4 of BePDF. I tried hrev27624 and it still didn't render the files (where it did previously)...

I just tried the latest version that you included as an optional package, and it works fine.

So, should we close this bug ?

Yes. I guess the older BePDF version did used hard-coded fallback fonts.
