I'm writing a metapost driver for the statistical software R and am having some
I produce a metapost file xxx.mp which uses font name "Times-Roman",
etc and have prologues:=1
I run mpost on xxx.mp and end up with xxx.1 containing lines like:
%%DocumentFonts: Times-Roman Times-Italic Times-Bold
/Times-Roman /Times-Roman def
/Times-Italic /Times-Italic def
This displays fine with imagemagick.
I'm then using mptopdf xxx.1 and the fonts aren't found. I know I can
fix this if I use the abbreviated font names that appear in the pdftex.map
file, but is there a way that enables me to keep the "proper" font
names --- imagemagick seems to cope with them.
