Subject RE: What causes "Using fallback font LiberationSans for Helvetica"?
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2017 14:53:16 GMT
Well, I thought Helvetica was a standard font in PDFBox.

In my run I have the same PDF produced twice.  The first PDF I don't get this message the
second PDF I do get it.  I'm wondering if I am not calling something to close out or clean
up something that is causing this message to come out.

Point is, do you know why the first PDF would generate fine and the same PDF with different
data (IE same fonts) would produce this log message?

Thank you,

 Am I possibly doing something wrong?

Do you have an Helvetica like font installed on your OS, e.g. Arial? If not, then this will
