trend arrows in PDF; font or small icons?

I replaced the 4.2.1 trend icons (black directional arrows) with the coloured ones from PMF 5.0. The one thing I noticed is that when I use PDF format, the old arrows are back. I saw some small arrow icons in the mainstreet folder of v4.2.1, but no equivalent sized icons for v5.0. Does the PDF use those small icons, or is there a font that contains the arrows? If it's a font, which one and where does it live?

PDF and PPT output formats use fonts to draw indicators.

PDF uses PostScript versions of the fonts, and PPT uses a TrueType font (and this font would need to be installed on your machine).

For the time being the PMF04 and PMF05 font sets - representing the Few (in V4 and V5) and Glass (in V5) indicator sets - are simple copies of the PMF03 font. We will get around to creating these distinct new sets shortly.
