Hi ,

till now we were using the version 0.9.2 in our application. We decided to upgrade to
version 1.4.8 but we experienced a strange problem. The rendering of the pdf file has changed somehow. The font are displayed extra bold , the table are not collapsed and the Helvetica font is always embedded.

Are there any best practices to make our templates work again ?

Re: Output rendering changes from Version 0.96 to 0.97 and above
When making such a jump in iText versions there are bound to be upgrade problems.
If fonts are now in bold, you may experience a font propagation problem, but I can't know for sure without seeing the source code. I have no idea what is meant with 'the table is not collapsed', but class Table has undergone a lot of changes. Font Helvetica however is never embedded. Not then, not now.
