Hello World using a TrueType font ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.8.2
    • Fix Version/s: 1.8.3, 2.0.0
    • Component/s: None

    • Environment:
      Windows 7 SP1 32-bit, pdfbox 1.8.2., NetBeans IDE 6.9.1


      The small example “Hello World using a TrueType font” on the pdfbox website does not work when selecting the Windows font “cour.ttf” (Courier New). It works with the non-fixed width fonts that I have tried (Arial, Albertus, Bookman Old Style, Garamond, Palatino, Segoe UI) and it works with Lucida Console, a fixed width font, but not Courier New.

      This is the error:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 5
      at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDTrueTypeFont.loadDescriptorDictionary(PDTrueTypeFont.java:418)

      at pdfbox_ttf_test.Main.main(Main.java:31)

      To me this is the same error as PDFBOX-1335, except maybe it is still not fixed for all fonts.

      I am using Windows 7 SP1 32-bit, pdfbox 1.8.2., NetBeans IDE 6.9.1
