EmbeddedFontFormat enumeration

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.


EMBEDDED_OPEN_TYPESpecifies Embedded OpenType (EOT) File Format.
OPEN_TYPESpecifies 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.

doc = aw.Document(MY_DIR + "Embedded font.docx")

embedded_font = doc.font_infos.get_by_name("Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift")
embedded_font_bytes = embedded_font.get_embedded_font(aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontFormat.OPEN_TYPE, aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontStyle.REGULAR)

with open(ARTIFACTS_DIR + "Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift.ttf", "wb") as file:

# 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 = aw.Document(MY_DIR + "Embedded font.doc")

self.assertIsNone(doc.font_infos.get_by_name("Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift").get_embedded_font(aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontFormat.OPEN_TYPE, aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontStyle.REGULAR))
self.assertIsNotNone(doc.font_infos.get_by_name("Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift").get_embedded_font(aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontFormat.EMBEDDED_OPEN_TYPE, aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontStyle.REGULAR))

# Also, we can convert embedded OpenType format, which comes from .doc documents, to OpenType.
embedded_font_bytes = doc.font_infos.get_by_name("Alte DIN 1451 Mittelschrift").get_embedded_font_as_open_type(aw.fonts.EmbeddedFontStyle.REGULAR)
