    Hello,
    I am trying to export a pdf from a "RadDocument" using the "PdfFormatProvider" and everything works as expected,
    Except that all the Hebrew text is turned into squares.(see attached image)

    Am i doing something wrong? or the "PdfFormatProvider" does not support hebrew?


    thank you.

    Hi Oren,

    The issue you are observing is related to a Silverlight limitation which prevents fonts from being embedded in the generated PDF. For this reason not all Unicode characters are exported correctly to PDF and unfortunately we haven't found a solution for this problem.

    What I could suggest as a workaround is to try exporting your documents server-side using the WPF version of RadRichTextBox where the mentioned limitation is not present.

    I hope this helps!

    Thank you for your reply.

    Can i call the WPF version of RadRichTextBox through a WCF service?
    or how would you suggest doing so?

    thank again.

    Hello Oren,

    Using a WCF service was exactly what I had in mind. Should you face any difficulties in this regard, please let us know.
