I am Appending Several Pdfs into a new single PdfDocument. The files that I am using have a font referenced which is on my system. I would like to embed the font into the merged file, but it doesnt seem to be working. I have seen the examples where the font is referenced and then a string is writting to a page. In my case I am not writing any new pages, simply appending from one to another. How would I specify a font to embedded into the final saved pdf?
var newPDFFileName = string.Format("{0}\\{1}_AllFiles_Merged.pdf", _FolderPath, WorkOrderNumber);
//var newPDF = new Document();
var newPDF = new PdfDocument();
foreach(var file in _Files) {
var pdf = new PdfLoadedDocument(file);
/* Cleanup */

Hi Aaron, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion products. 
At present we do not have support for Embedding all the font in PDF document while performing merge operation. We have logged a feature request for the same and we will let you know once this feature is implemented. 
However, we have created a simple workaround for embed font while merging multiple documents by replacing the used font from loaded document with embedded font, the sample for the same can be downloaded from below link: 
1.This works only when the font to be embedded is present in the system. 
2.Embedding font will increase the file size than the parent file size.

Thanks for the quick response.  I think your sample will get me to where I need to be, however I ran into an exception while implementing it (screenshot below).  Is there a way to set the emSize? I did a search in the forums and didnt find anything related to this, and I didnt see anything in your example that deals with this either.  Could the issue be in the pdfs that I am working with?

pdfLoadForFontEmbedding.UsedFonts 'pdfLoadForFontEmbedding.UsedFonts' threw an exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' Syncfusion.Pdf.Graphics.Fonts.PdfUsedFont[] {System.ArgumentException}
