PDF-Export: italic font information lost on plain text export

0 votes

Hello there!

When exporting graphs to PDF using any of the options "plain text with embedded font" or simply "plain text", it seems the italic information is lost on all text using the default dialog font.

Other fonts like calibri display just fine in the final result.

Thank you very much for the bug report and the test case. I have filed a corresponding report in our internal issue tracking system. I think this is probably a shortcoming in the third-party PDF export library we use in yEd. This library (FreeHEP VectorGraphics) is quite old and no longer maintained. Thus I am not sure if we will be able to provide a fix for this.
