The PDF format defines 14 standard fonts which you can use without embedding those fonts:
Courier Bold Oblique
Bold + Italic
Helvetica Bold Oblique
Bold + Italic
Times Bold Italic
Bold + Italic
This is great, because those fonts are always available in DynaPDF independent of what the user has installed. Especially with Xojo applications on linux, where DynaPDF doesn't know where system font files are and you have to use them yourself. Same for Xojo Cloud.

If you need a license for MBS Plugin, please purchase them through an official channel. We sell them in on our website, through Share-It, in the Xojo web store and the K&K Verlag.
Sometimes it happens that someone tries to sell his license. This is legal and possible, but please check with us to be sure the license key is valid and upgradable. And the license key should be named after the seller, so you know we issued it for him. Actually the license agreement always states that you need to have written authorization to transfer it.
But so far some people trying to sell a MBS license are not honest. They got the key somehow, prefer to get cash and the license key of course does not match their name. Please don't buy such a license key.
Having an illegal license does not help you. If this is detected, you have to buy a new license regularly including updates for the past to get back on the right track. Else the lawyers would force you into destroying all your software using the illegal license. This can include that all your customers have to stop using your software, get their money back and of course sue you for compensation.
So please if you got a license key second hand or plan to get one, please contact us to make sure the license key is legal.
How do we know you use an illegal license key?
Well, you may want to come to use and buy an upgrade. Or a good friend of you wants to put you in trouble and reveals your dirty secret. Third, we download a lot of software and scan them for license keys.
Finally as a developer you should yourself know that people need to pay their license to you for you to make a living. So please apply same rules to the tools you use and pay for them.

Well, in our plugins we have a function to Encode Text to HTML and it didn't work for those smileys. The reason is that those are outside the normal 16bit unicode range. They need 2 characters in UTF16. Most functions in our plugins don't look for such things. And normally it doesn't matter as we pass through texts. But for encoding to HTML we need to handle UTF32 well. So plugin needs to decode 16bit character pairs to make sure they are encoded correctly.
So after a couple of hours work on our plugin's text handling you can now enjoy plugins doing it right!
If you are interested in encrypted SQLite databases with SQLCipher, you can use their library with our plugins.
You simply get a copy of their library, either the commercial or the open source one. For open source, I built my own copies today for Mac and below you can download them. When you use my SQL plugin functions, you normally set option to point to libsqlite.dylib file. But instead to this file, you point to the libsqlcipher.dylib file. Now you run as first command "PRAGMA key = 'passphrase';" to pass in your password for the database. All following calls should run normal and the file is encrypted.
This is not the same encryption as used by Xojo. They use the SQLite Encryption Extension from Hwaci - Applied Software Research (see hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/)
