I had some strange issues copying text out of a PDF on my iPad (I always got a bunch of ????), so I decided to run my pdf through xpdf to see if that would fix things:

pdftops naughty.pdf intermediate.ps
pstopdf -o good.pdf intermediate.ps

After the first command ran though, I got the following error:

Config Error: No display font for 'Helvetica-Bold'
Config Error: No display font for 'Times-Bold'
Config Error: No display font for 'Times-BoldItalic'
Config Error: No display font for 'Times-Italic'
Config Error: No display font for 'Times-Roman'

On a Linux installation, I'd typically resolve this by installing a font package, but I'm not sure what to do on OS X.

  • Look in /System/Library/Fonts for Helvetica.dfont and Times.dfont. Report back. – IconDaemon Feb 4 '18 at 18:54
  • Both Helvetica.ttc and Times.ttc are present. – fny Feb 5 '18 at 22:37
