Error "Doc1Rpk failed to generate a resource pack" in Doc1 Designer

Products affected:  Doc1 Designer Series 5 & 6
 

Issue

The issue happened when publishing using an AFP output device where the output font format was set to AFP Bitmap (FOCA), and the language set in Designer was Unicode, or other complex language.

The EngageOne Designer returned an error message "Doc1Rpk failed to generate a resource pack. Please send the logfile... to Customer Support.".
 
The publish log contains the following:

ERROR rpkafp.c 4310 RpkCreateMapFile : RPKAFP: ERROR Source font contains more variable size glyphs than permitted for an AFP FOCA font.

INFO rpkafp.c 4319 RpkCreateMapFile : The AFP font architecture has a limit on the number of variable width glyphs that can be in a raster font. Try publishing using FOCA Type1 Outline fonts.

Cause

Source font contains more variable size glyphs than permitted for an AFP FOCA font.

Resolution

UPDATED: April 24, 2019

Changing the AFP output device in Designer to Output Font Format: FOCA Type1 resolved the issue.
