Publishing Lessons from the Long History of the PDF

Marie Gollentz
Project Manager, Typefi

The Portable Document Format (PDF) has come a long way since it was launched by Adobe in 1993. What started as a little-known technology to keep page layout from going wonky has now become a feature-rich format that is used by people the world over.

In 2020, Adobe estimated that there were more than 2.5 trillion PDFs in existence – that’s more than 320 PDFs for each person on Earth! In that same year, about 303 billion PDFs were opened using Adobe Document Cloud.

The PDF can offer those of us in the world of publishing and content some interesting blueprints for success. In this piece, learn more about what the development of the PDF can teach us when it comes to developing our products, driving popular appeal and soaring above competitors in the marketplace.

Support for PostScript Type 1 fonts is ending

For decades, MathType EPS equations have been created using references to Type 1 fonts, also known as PostScript fonts.

On June 23, 2022, Adobe announced that they will disable support for authoring with Type 1 fonts by January 2023. Users will no longer have the ability to author content using Type 1 fonts after that time.
