I tried modifying the xdo.cfg to support new font and this is the syntax I used. <font family="AkzidenzGroteskBE LightEx" style="normal" weight="normal"> <type1 pfb="c:\fonts\AKZGBELE.pfb" pfm="c:\font

I tried modifying the xdo.cfg to support new font and this is the syntax I used.
<font family="AkzidenzGroteskBE LightEx" style="normal" weight="normal">
<type1 pfb="c:\fonts\AKZGBELE.pfb" pfm="c:\fonts\AKZGBELE.pfm" />
</font>
When I generate the font, in Word and HTML it works well but not in PDF. Generating in PDF only defaults to Arial. Is the syntax correct?

Hi
Its not actually working in word and html - you have the fonts installed on your machine so browsers and word know how to access the fonts directory - your config setting is not needed and is therefore ignored.
To get it working for PDF (Adobe is not aware of the fonts directory) you need the config set up correctly.
You need:

<font family="IDAutomationC128S" style="normal" weight="normal">
<type1 pfb="D:\fonts\IDAutomationC128S.pfb" pfm="D:\fonts\IDAutomationC128S.pfm" />
</font>

If you can possibly use a truetpye font we would recommend it.
