Html5 and webfonts


Hi, Im just looking into the possibility of using groupdocs for displaying some pdf’s online.

The website says HTML5-based Native Text Rendering. Does this include webfonts from the original PDF? Will it render the fonts with accuracy (if the font has kerning or whatever)?


Hello, Chris!

Confirmed this with our developers. Right now PDF's original fonts are not supported but we constantly improve the GroupDocs.Viewer so, it may be implemented in the next version.

If you are interested and one-two weeks time delay is not a problem for you, please describe your use-case to our sales team ( and we will look what we can get for you.

Also, you may try to use an image-based mode with text selection enabled as a temporary solution.
