# KB0008528: Original PDF Uses a Typeface Different from the Preview in Review/Validate

Issue:

Ephesoft Transact is not reading a PDF correctly. The fonts appear to be different in the original PDF and the document in the Review/Validate screen.

Root Cause:

When Ghostscript converts a PDF to a single page TIFF during folder import, Ghostscript converts the fonts to a more readable font. However, some fonts are not supported in Ghostscript and are substituted with a different font, such as Helvetica.

Solution:

Follow these steps to manually add the fonts to the Ghostscript font library.

1. Open the following file in Notepad: C:\Ephesoft\Application\native\RecostarPlugin\bin\GsRenderer\Fontmap.GS
2. In this file, the standard entries have the original font name in the document and the font name for converting.

```/TimesNewRoman                          /TimesNewRomanPSMT ;
/TimesNewRoman,Bold                  /TimesNewRomanPS-BoldMT ;
/TimesNewRoman,Italic                  /TimesNewRomanPS-ItalicMT ;
/TimesNewRoman,BoldItalic           /TimesNewRomanPS-BoldItalicMT ;```
3. At the bottom of the file, create a new entry for your font and the font to be converted. The following example uses Lucida Sans Bold as the original font and converts it to a Windows TrueType font l_10646.

```/LucidaSans,Bold (C:/Windows/Fonts/l_10646.ttf) ;
/Dialog (C:/Windows/Fonts/l_10646.ttf) ;```
4. Save the Fontmap.GS file
5. Restart Ephesoft Transact.
