Hi, I am using Syncfusion.Pdf dll to create pdf, and is all ok but i had embed font using this code c#

                            Font font = new Font(new FontFamily(fontnome), 20f, FontStyle.Regular);
                            PdfFont carattere = new PdfTrueTypeFont(font, FontStyle.Regular, (float)Convert.ToDouble(dr_ele[7]), false, true);
but enbed font have this name WCSGIM+//fontname// so acrobat cannot read it.
How can i do?

I have to add some info about this tread.
I have checked with fontforge, the info about font enbed, and i see that the font are enbed with this name WCSGIM+//fontname//  and is it correct because for some font fontforge can find all the glifi and bmp, for other like (Museo sans 500) cannot find usable bitmap for this font ttf. So i check this is not a truetypefont but an OpenType .
May be this is the cause of this problem??

Hi Macro, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We found that you have enabled the font embedding option and disabled the Unicode support. The open type fonts only support while enabling the Unicode option in the PdfTrueTypeFont instance. Please refer the below code snippet to draw the text using open type font. 
PdfFont carattere = new PdfTrueTypeFont(font, FontStyle.Regular, (float)Convert.ToDouble(dr_ele[7]), true, true); 
Please try the above solution in your end and let us know whether your requirement is achieved or not. If not please share us the font and sample text to draw it into PDF document. It will helpful for us to provide the precise solution on this. 
With Regards, 
Anand Panchamoorthi

Hy Anand,
many thanks for your reply. Unfortunatly i Have tried as you tell to me but the font is not correctly embed. As before if I open the file in acrobat or fontforge , I can see the name of the font embed but the font library is missed
The Font is Museo Sans 500, but as my customer tell to me the same with all Museo Sans font.

Hi Macro, 

We have tried with the sample to draw the text using Museo Sans 500 font in PDF document. But the font is embedded properly and preserved in font entries of resultant PDF document. Please refer the below screenshots for more details,
