CFF table Error report

Hello everybody,

I need advice about a problem that i can't figure out how to solve it.

I sent a font to a site and they replied to me they cannot accept the file because:

"OTSanitizer report: Process start (TTF file) ProcessGeneric start Validating font Reading font OTS ERROR::CFF: Failed validating charstring set 0 OTS ERROR::CFF : failed to parse table Process end Failed to sanitise file! Font failed OT Sanitizer check Issues in the font file: CFF table error, failed to parse table Issues in the font file that can be fixed using OTScrubber : There was a problem with the structure of the 'CFF ' table"

They find some kind of problem with CFF table. How can i scan a file to find this type of problem? and how can ai solve it?

Thank you 


  • Most likely your font editing software generated a corrupt font. OTSanitizer is very strict, and seems to reject more and more "slightly incorrect" fonts with every new update. Personally I think it is a good thing, but it would be nice if they would let us know about this, so we can update our font editor if needed.

    I suggest you either ensure you are using the latest version of the font editor, or contact the company who made it, so they can fix it.

    The current Font Validator does check CFF table. Have a go and see. You want the dmg for mac, and net4 zip for windows. The CFF test is platform-independent, so if you are on linux, get the net4 zip also, and run it with mono. Font Validator/
