PDF::API2::Resource::Font::SynFont(3) Module for using synthetic Fonts.


use PDF::API2;
$pdf = PDF::API2->new;
$sft = $pdf->synfont($cft);


$font = PDF::API2::Resource::Font::SynFont->new $pdf, $fontobj, %options
Returns a synfont object.

Valid %options are:

-encode ... changes the encoding of the font from its default. See perl's Encode for the supported values.

-pdfname ... changes the reference-name of the font from its default. The reference-name is normally generated automatically and can be retrived via $pdfname=$font->name.

-slant ... slant/expansion factor (0.1-0.9 = slant, 1.1+ = expansion).

-oblique ... italic angle (+/-)

-bold ... embolding factor (0.1+, bold=1, heavy=2, ...).

-space ... additional charspacing in em (0-1000).

-caps ... create synthetic small-caps.

$font = PDF::API2::Resource::Font::SynFont->new_api $api, $fontobj, %options
Returns a synfont object. This method is different from 'new' that it needs an PDF::API2-object rather than a PDF::API2::PDF::File-object.
