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 = array('dejavusanscondensed', 'arialunicodems', 'sun-exta'); // this will recognise most scripts

$mpdf->backupSubsFont = array('dejavusanscondensed', 'arialunicodems'); // good default - REQUIRES Arial Unicode MS
