Re: RE : [tdf-discuss] Re: Feature request - embed font


One other problem with embedding the font in the file (which I didn't see
anyone bring up, and if they did, I apologize) is it would increase the file
size for the document. That isn't much of a concern with a single document,
but if you have a couple thousand documents, each with the same font(s)
embedded, that would take up a lot of unneccessary space.

I do like the idea of an online font repository where the font can be
downloaded as needed, although logistically, I'm a little unsure how that
wold work. I'd also be concerned about whether that would force the user to
only use the fonts in the repository.

O.K., so is everyone now in agreement that there is no legal problem
embedding a font that explicitly licenses itself to be embedded?

I am new here and am a bit mystified at the way discussion seems to move,
with inapposite answers to comments and then the point gets lost along the
way.

This  https://www.adobe.com/type/browser/info/embedding.html Adobe page
lists the four levels of permissions granted (or not, as the case may be)
by
a font's license. (However, according to

http://forums.adobe.com/thread/634966?decorator=print&displayFullThread=true
this forum discussion , "installable embedding" is only a theoretical, not
a
practical option for lack of any software that actually performs this.

Legal matters aside, I like the idea of an online font repository and
downloading from there as needed.
