Loading TYPE1 fonts (with JRE 1.5.0)
Posted on 2004-05-02
Supposedly 1.5.0 has added support for Adobe TYPE1 fonts ..
But it doesn't seem to work when I try to load any.
I've created this font loader which loads a font from the net and uses it in a JTextPane. It works fine with TrueType fonts, but when I modified it to support TYPE1 it doesn't work.
It doesn't display and error message or anything, it's just that all fonts I load seem to look just like the default Swing font ...
Does anyone know if it's possible to load TYPE1 fonts using the createFont() method yet?
