    I need custom ttf-fonts for pd4ml and followed the guide at http://pd4ml.com/cookbook/pd4ml_pdf_true_type_fonts.htm

    It states, that after running the command following command
    $ java -jar pd4ml.jar -configure.fonts /fonts/directory
    a pd4fonts.properties-file gets generated. This is not the case, I execute the command and it generates a file “.fonts” at the current cmd-path (“cd”). I tried giving pd4ml a relative as well as a full path to the font folder, I executed it as administrator and I downloaded different versions of pd4ml (380, 391 and the recent 3107), nothing worked. Also running it with both java 1.8 and java 1.7 shows same results. My OS is windows 10.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Best regards


    Hi Florian! The strange results you got have no good explanation. The command line should produce pd4fonts.properties file (not .fonts).

    Could you please try something like that:
    java -jar pd4ml.jar -configure.fonts c:/windows/fonts c:/tmp

    It should produce the .properties file for the standard Windows fonts in c:/tmp (assuming the target directory exists)
