Java API for Various Font Formats


Product Page | Docs | API Reference | Examples | Blog | Search | Free Support | Temporary License

Aspose.Font for Java is a font loading and drawing library. It supports multiple front formats such as TrueType (with TrueType collectons), CFF, OpenType, and Type1. The API provides rich functionality to load/save font and provide information about its data structures along with any glyph that is supported by all the font types. It also provides encoding information for all the font types which represents a mapping between character codes and glyph identifiers. Its rendering subsystem helps end-users to render any desired glyph or text. Special glyphs can be rendered by implementing interface using simple graphics functionality (move point, draw line, curve).

Font API Features

  • Load font files from disc as well as stream.
  • Read font information and save updated font files to disc.
  • Support for TrueType and OpenType Fonts.
  • Load TrueType Font types from locally stored files, update parameters and save.
  • Work with Glyphs and Metrics of TrueType Fonts.
  • Render text using TrueType and Type1 font.
  • Detect Latin Symbols in Fonts.
  • Load and extract data from Type1 Font stored at the local disc.
  • Work with Glyphs and Metrics of Type1 Fonts.
  • Render text using custom interfaces.

Detect Latin Symbols Support in the Font using Java

// For complete examples and data files, please go to
String fileName = Utils.getDataDir() + "Montserrat-Regular.ttf"; //Font file name with full path

      FontDefinition fd = new FontDefinition(FontType.TTF, new FontFileDefinition("ttf", new FileSystemStreamSource(fileName)));
      TtfFont ttfFont = (TtfFont);

      boolean latinText = true;
      for (int code = 65; code < 123; code++)
          GlyphId gid = ttfFont.getEncoding().decodeToGid(code);
          if (gid == null || gid == GlyphUInt32Id.getNotDef())
              latinText = false;

      if (latinText)
          System.out.println(MessageFormat.format("Font {0} supports latin symbols.", ttfFont.getFontName()));
      	System.out.println(MessageFormat.format("Latin symbols are not supported by font {0}.", ttfFont.getFontName()));
