Finding exact font names

A given font can have different names. And the name of the font which you see in your source application is not necessarily the same as its “real” internal font name.

For example, the Adobe Type 1 font “Times” as you see it in your word processing or desktop publishing program also has a PostScript name: “Times-Roman”. The same applies to its TrueType counterpart “Times New Roman”: its name appears in Adobe Acrobat as “TimesNewRoman” (without spaces).

Consequently, if you need to enter a font name manually in one of the dialog boxes of PitStop Pro, it is important that you type the font name exactly as it is spelled in Adobe Acrobat . You can use a PDF file to find the exact spelling of the name.
