PDF-utils with custom font causes undefined Name error

  • Hello folks,

    I have JSReport running on a docker container and using a template on the pug engine with the chrome-pdf recipe. I've been trying to figure out a way that I can sign the pdf with a certificate but when I configure it via pdf-utils (or pdf-sign), I get an error with the message "A Name cannot be undefined".

    Error: Error while executing pdf-utils operations. A Name cannot be undefined
    at module.exports (/app/node_modules/jsreport-core/lib/util/createError.js:11:13)
    at Reporter.createError (/app/node_modules/jsreport-core/lib/reporter.js:332:12)

    It seems like this could be caused by a custom google font I'm using called Inconsolata.
    CSS here: https://www.cssfontstack.com/Inconsolata
    If I change it to Arial or Helvetica then the pdf successfully generates but this particular custom font is needed. I have tried to find workarounds for this issue but so far have been unsuccessful so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Hi,

    would you be able to create a minimal playground demo replicating the error so we can take a look?
    Thank you
