[reportlab-users] Font Helvetica always used?

It's always declared as the default font when we make a new document -
the one that would be used if you just drew some text without changing
the font - but there is no font file embedded.   Helvetica, Courier
and Times-Roman are always available on any Postscript printer or PDF
reader, so they don't need embedding.   There is nothing to get rid
of, and no significant file size consumed by it.

Hope this helps,

These fonts are correctly embedded in the final document. But in the font list there is also a font type "Helvetica". I do not use such a font. Is this something internal? How to rid of this font?
