PDFlib FontReporter

PDFlib FontReporter is a free plugin for analyzing fonts in PDF documents. It generates detailed information reports from any PDF file loaded into Adobe Acrobat. With a single click, PDFlib FontReporter collects general information, font-related information, and glyph tables for all fonts in a PDF and generates a font report in a separate PDF.

The PDFlib FontReporter plugin works with the following Acrobat versions:

  • Acrobat 8-DC Standard, Pro/Professional and Pro Extended on Windows.
  • Acrobat X/XI/DC Standard and Pro/Professional on OS X 10.9 and higher.

The plugin doesn’t work with Acrobat Reader/Adobe Reader.
