AFP: Customize AFP Fonts For Optimal Display

All of our solutions support Font Maps for AFP allowing users to modify properties of their fonts including font type, point size, color, and style. Font maps enable companies to standardize how AFP documents display by overriding the internal font objects with custom fonts and styles. Fonts maps, created as simple ASCII files, ensure that documents display correctly and allow administrators to control the look of documents.

Important: Test Your Documents and Images

Avoid surprises and delays. Snowbound recommends that, as part of your evaluation process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Though we've been in the document business for almost 20 years, modifications to document formats occur from time to time. Often they don't conform to specifications, but you may find it important to work with them.

Snowbound, unlike most of our competitors, develops it own technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often quickly fix it.
