Embeddable fonts may be stored in a document. When a document with embedded fonts is opened on a system that does not have the font installed (the remote system), the embedded font may be loaded for temporary (and in some cases, permanent) use on that system by an embedding-aware application. Embedding licensing rights are granted by the designer (or vendor) of the font.

Installable (no embedding restrictions)

Fonts that have none of the flags set are installable embedding fonts. Fonts with this setting indicate that they may be embedded and permanently installed on the remote system by an application. The user of the remote system acquires the identical rights, obligations and licenses for that font as the original purchaser of the font, and is subject to the same end-user license agreement, copyright, design patent, and/or trademark as was the original purchaser.

Editable (read-write)

Fonts with this flag set indicate that they may be embedded in documents, but must only be installed temporarily on the remote system. In contrast to Preview & Print fonts, documents containing Editable fonts may be opened "read-write;" editing is permitted, and changes may be saved.

Preview & Print (read-only)

Fonts with this flag set indicate that they may be embedded within documents but must only be installed temporarily on the remote system. Any document which includes a Preview & Print embedded font must be opened "read-only;" the application must not allow the user to edit the document; it can only be viewed and/or printed.

Restricted (embedding is not allowed)

Fonts that have this flag set must not be modified, embedded or exchanged in any manner without first obtaining permission of the legal owner.

No subsetting

When this flag is set, the font may not be subsetted prior to embedding.

Bitmap embedding only

When this flag is set, only bitmaps contained in the font may be embedded. No outline data may be embedded.
