How to extract fonts from PDF files

Have you ever seen a beautiful PDF file and wished you could use its fonts? I have. This evening I spent more than an hour trying to find a way to extract a font from an absolutely beautiful Arabic book (it used a variant of Microsoft's Traditional Arabic font). Google, like usual, was useless for this type of rare endeavor. But thanks to God, I remembered a software company known as Process Text Group who specialize in text software.

I went to their website. Sadly there was no mention of a PDF font extractor. However, I looked at the details page for their PDF converter, and Alhamdulillah! It said it could extract fonts.



You can download the program from this page. It is a trial version, but functional nonetheless. Go to View-->Fonts to view and save the fonts you want.
