- -enc ansi
with this option you can create a WinAnsi encoded font. The default is
to create a CID keyed font. If you're not going to use characters

add this option.
- -ttcname fontname
if you're reading data from TrueType Collection (.ttc file) you must
specify which font from the collection you will read metrics from. If

- -fn fontname
default is to use the fontname in the .ttf file, but you can override
that name to make sure that the embedded font is used (if you're
embedding fonts) instead of installed fonts when viewing documents with
