    I am adding a Code 128 barcode (some numbers in a Code 128 font) to a Rich Textbox and then exporting it to a PDF.  Everything is fine onscreen but the PDF is showing the numbers using a default font and not the Barcode font.

    The attached image shows the textbox content (top) with the resulting PDF (bottom).

    I also tried this with a 'Code 3 of 9' barcode font with the same result.

    Is there any restriction in the fonts that can be used when generating a PDF?

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Hello Rob,
    Maybe something went wrong when u were installing your code 128 font. You may install it again or give a try to some other fonts. Good luck

    Best,

    Hi Makaveil,

    Thank you for writing.

    If I understand you this functionality is working on your machine with RadRichTextBox. Because I have tested this also with "Code 39" font and the problem still appears. If it is working on your side I want to kindly ask you to share the details so the community can use your solution as a workaround until this issue is resolved. 

    Thank you in advance.
