HM 7.4 Beta: PDF Font Improvements

Unread postby Tim Green » Tue Jul 24, 2018 7:24 am

We are currently offering an open beta of Help+Manual 7.4 with significant improvements for font handling in PDF output. These include:

  • Support for TrueType font collections (previously embedded as Type3 with lower quality)
  • Improved handling of fonts that do not have their own italic versions
  • Support for custom FontAwesome symbol font collections in PDF
For full details please see the latest blog posting here:

You can download and try out the beta here:

https://www.helpandmanual.com/download/ ... p-v740.exe

You can install this in parallel to your current version of Help+Manual if you wish. To do this, just select a different folder for the installation so that you don't update the existing version. If you do update the existing version you can easily remove the beta and return to the release version by reinstalling the release version.
