    Hello James,

    Welcome to the BarTender Community Forums!

    The issue you are experiencing with the rasterization of fonts when using the Native PDF printer in BarTender may be due to the font embedding settings in your template. When a font is embedded in a PDF, it means that the actual font data is included within the PDF file, allowing it to be displayed and printed correctly on any system, even if the font is not installed.

    By default, BarTender tries to embed all fonts in the PDF file to ensure accurate rendering. However, there are cases where fonts cannot be embedded due to licensing restrictions or technical limitations. In such cases, BarTender may rasterize the font, converting it to an image, to ensure that the text is displayed correctly.

    The fact that the Arial and Consolas fonts behave differently in your template suggests that the Consolas font may not be embeddable, leading to rasterization, while Arial is embeddable and remains a vector font. This behavior can be controlled through the font embedding settings in BarTender. Here's how you can check and modify the settings:

    • Open your BarTender template.
    • Select one of the text fields that uses the Consolas font.
    • Right-click on the text field and choose "Properties" from the context menu.
    • In the "Properties" window, go to the "Font" tab.
    • Check the "Embed this font in the label" option. If it's already checked, it means the Consolas font cannot be embedded.
    • If the Consolas font cannot be embedded, you can try changing the font to a similar font that is embeddable or contact the font vendor to see if there are any embeddable versions available.
    • After making any changes, save the template and try printing it as a PDF using the Native PDF printer again.

    By reviewing and adjusting the font embedding settings, you should be able to control whether a font gets rasterized or remains as a vector font in the PDF output generated by BarTender.

    I hope this helps!
