Issue/Introduction

When using the CA Spool Transformers to create files in PDF format (from Metacode or AFP) it is not possible to use the find function of the PDF reader. Even if the string is in the text the find command returns a message saying no matches were found

Cause

This is consequence of using the TRANSFRM option L to rasterize all used fonts which causes the text to be not searchable. 

Without the L option, the supplied M2yy.d2emfct defaults to pdfFontType="Type3", which is searchable. 

Environment

Release: CMASLI00200-11.7-Spool-Print Management-Interface for HP Laser
Component:

Resolution

Remove the "L" option of the TRANSFRM keyword of the NODE or DEFNODE definitions.
