AFP with outline fonts viewed as PDF from EngageOne Vault V6.1 displays incorrectly on MAC OS Sierra V10.12.6

User-added image


When AFP outline fonts are created by DOC1Generate, they are placed in a Type 1 font wrapper, and V6.1 of Vault was embedding Type 1 fonts as PFB, when the specification says PFA.  In the majority of viewers this was not an issue, but Safari on Sierra 10.12.6 it was specifically looking for the Type 1 PFA resulting in the view being scrambled.



UPDATED: July 5, 2018

This was resolved in a later version of the MAC OS (High Sierra 10.13.4), or by upgrading to V7.4 of Vault, where the Type 1 font wrappers were correctly processed.
