EmbeddedFontFormat enumeration

Specifies format of particular embedded font inside FontInfo object.

When saving a document to a file, only embedded fonts of corresponding format are written down.

public enum EmbeddedFontFormat


EmbeddedOpenType0Specifies Embedded OpenType (EOT) File Format.
OpenType1Specifies font, embedded as plain copy of OpenType (TrueType) font file.


Shows how to extract an embedded font from a document, and save it to the local file system.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Embedded font.docx");

FontInfo embeddedFont = doc.FontInfos["Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift"];
byte[] embeddedFontBytes = embeddedFont.GetEmbeddedFont(EmbeddedFontFormat.OpenType, EmbeddedFontStyle.Regular);
File.WriteAllBytes(ArtifactsDir + "Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift.ttf", embeddedFontBytes);

// Embedded font formats may be different in other formats such as .doc.
// We need to know the correct format before we can extract the font.
doc = new Document(MyDir + "Embedded font.doc");

Assert.IsNull(doc.FontInfos["Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift"].GetEmbeddedFont(EmbeddedFontFormat.OpenType, EmbeddedFontStyle.Regular));
Assert.IsNotNull(doc.FontInfos["Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift"].GetEmbeddedFont(EmbeddedFontFormat.EmbeddedOpenType, EmbeddedFontStyle.Regular));

// Also, we can convert embedded OpenType format, which comes from .doc documents, to OpenType.
embeddedFontBytes = doc.FontInfos["Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift"].GetEmbeddedFontAsOpenType(EmbeddedFontStyle.Regular);

File.WriteAllBytes(ArtifactsDir + "Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift.otf", embeddedFontBytes);
