20036: Annotation layer may use inline fonts that are not installed on the server

In order for fonts to be used successfully within a GIS service the font must either reside on the server machine or, if the font is not present on the server, the font must be embeddable within the GIS resource. Your annotation layer may use a fonts that are not present on the server machine but may be embeddable.


  • Use the analyzer solution to embed inline annotation fonts. This operation may take additional time as all features will be interrogated.
  • Use a font that is installed on the server or a font that can be embedded into a document. The embeddability of a font can be viewed as a property of the font in Microsoft Windows. Note that Type 1 fonts will not be embedded for use on services. Type 1 fonts should either be installed on the server or substituted with TrueType or OpenType fonts.
  • Do nothing and allow font substitution to determine symbology. Font substitution is a method of displaying text in a different font when the requested font is not present on the system. For instance, if a map contains text that uses the font Helvetica, but Helvetica is not installed on the server, the text will appear in Arial instead.
