mPDF Manual – mPDF Variables


mPDF ≥ 5.0

Optional array containing font(s) to use for missing characters when using useSubstitutions.

Default set in font configuration variables or at runtime.

Default value: array(‘dejavusanscondensed’)

Only relevant when using subsets (otherwise would add very large file), and doesn’t do Indic or arabic text

More than 1 font can be specified but each will add to the processing time of the script

Names used are as defined in fontdata configuration variable.


$mpdf->backupSubsFont = ['dejavusanscondensed', 'sun-exta']; // this will recognise most scripts

$mpdf->backupSubsFont = ['dejavusanscondensed']; // good default
