Convert document using custom font

Introduction

This example demonstrates how to convert document that use custom font, or non-standard font. Fonts should be uploaded into cloud storage before conversion. Then put path to fonts into conversion options.

There are steps that usage of GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud consists of:

  1. Upload input document and fonts into cloud storage
  2. Convert document
  3. Download converted document from storage

Steps 1 and 3 are storage operations, please refer to this GroupDocs.Storage Cloud documentation for usage details.

Step 3 is not needed, if “OutputPath” option is not provided: the convert api method will return converted document in the response body.

Swagger UI lets you call this REST API directly from the browser.

SDKs

Our API is completely independent of your operating system, database system or development language. You can use any language and platform that supports HTTP to interact with our API. However, manually writing client code can be difficult, error-prone and time-consuming. Therefore, we have provided and support API SDKs in many development languages in order to make it easier to integrate with us.
