2427009 - Windows Verdana font will be not printed over a Postscript device type


You upload the Windows Verdana font into the system as described in KBA #1605966. During the upload the error "post table: format not 2.0 (Microsoft)" is raised, but the font is still imported.

When the font is used in a SAPscript or Smartform and printed via a postscript device type like POST2, then the font will be not embedded into the print data and during print a different font is used.
The output request has status completed, but in the spool workprocess trace file the following error can be seen:

S  *** ERROR => otf_post_write_charstrings() - no PS glyph name info [rspootf.c    17935]
