Dear all,

Explicitly including label fonts (using FreeType) works in PDF
renders. Embedding the font is a pain though, as it doubles the
size of the page. It doesn't seem like I can use Type 1 fonts.
This is annoying since PDF readers don't need to have Type 1 fonts
included in documents.

Subject: [Mapserver-users] Text labels do not appear in PDF output

Hello all,

I am generating PDF maps using Mapserver (CGI 4.0.1 with
libpdf and freetype built in. Town names appear correctly
on the PNG output, but do not appear at all on the PDF output.
The point markers do appear.. I am not using True Type fonts,
or any kind of font declarations at all for that matter (just
size and colour).

Any hints on how to get labels working in PDF? Do I need to
explicitly use fonts or something? (that's my next test)
