It sounds as if you need to increase the amount of memory available to the
JRE, as you have to do when generating very large documents. You can do
this with the -Xms and -Xmx (minimum and maximum, respectively) switches
during your call:
java -Xms16M -Xmx1024M ...
Hope this helps,

Subject: [xep-support] Fonts - Out of memory (v3.8.1)

While trying to create a test pdf file with all my TrueType fonts (70 fonts:
roman, bold, italic and bolditalic), I get the following error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError <<no stack trace
Is there a limit to the number of fonts that can be used? All fonts are
embedded and not subsetted in my fonts.xml file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Stijn Elst.
