OpenType-SVG colour fonts

Post by JimmyHartington » Fri Oct 19, 2018 2:27 pm


One of the new feautures of InDesign CC 2019 is the ability to use OpenType-SVG colour fonts like this one:

I have made a pdf and preflighted it. And gets no errors. The file is here:

And the file has been ripped by a printer correctly.

Does anybody know of any situation, where we need to be aware of this new font format?

The PDF format doesn't support opentype svg. Therefore indesign transforms the font to a postscript font when converting to PDF.

Postscript fonts have been around for a long time, so good PDF applications should be able to handle them.
