Description Adolfo Jayme 2013-05-08 12:34:43 UTC
I’ve just saw this in the 4.1 release notes wiki page:

This is a huge waste of space and unnecessary UI and code complexity added to the “Properties” dialog. There’s absolutely no need to add a new .ui file to create a new tab page that will just have one tiny check box in it, that’s very silly.

That check box, “Embed fonts in the document”, could have been placed in the “General” tab instead.
Comment 1 Olivier R. 2013-05-08 12:55:54 UTC
I agree.
Comment 2 João Paulo 2013-05-26 02:27:35 UTC
Also agree.
Comment 3 Milan Bouchet-Valat 2013-05-31 12:34:19 UTC
The checkbox could probably go to the General tab.
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme 2013-05-31 18:36:10 UTC
@Milan: Yeah, that’s what I said :-)
Comment 5 João Paulo 2013-07-31 05:26:50 UTC
I think the checkbox could have a child checkbox for subsetting the font. If this clutters the General tab, maybe the Security and Fonts tabs could be merged.

Okular with font property

Okular has property dialog with font tab. They have used it to show embedded fonts.

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise

In the meantime, I have added a heading label to this checkbox, so that the tabpage doesn’t look confusingly empty anymore. Also, this (and other dialogs) are being improved in many ways, so this bug report has become obsolete. Resolving INVALID as we don’t have the OBSOLETE status. ;-)

I think adding the list of fonts Manik suggested would be nice, but that requires another bug report.
