    Hi,

    I am getting pdf files in a byte array form from the MS Reporting Services PDF Rendering Extension 11.0.0.0. Fonts are embeded and everything works fine, but if there are some special characters like letters with apostrophe the document is not displayed. If I save that document and open it with Adobe Reader it looks fine. The only difference that i'm aware of is that this documet has also an embeded subset of type 'TrueType (CID)' with encoding 'Identity-H'. Verdana is the only font in the document. Is there a solution to this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Branislav

    I'm also having issues with Encoding as Identity-H

    The PDF looks fine, but on some client desktops they will not print properly unless we have the Fonts Embedded.

    Embedding a SubSet increase our PDF file size 10fold and thought would be unnecessary with a universal font like Arial.
    5 page report 37KB => 264KB

    Is there any PDF Device information setting to change the Encoding to something like Ansi?



    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi Kammen,

    I want to change Font encoding from Encoding: Identity-H to Encoding: Ansi, to show few special characters in generated PDF.
    I am using Telerik Reportin Q3 2014 8.2.14.1027 build  and deviceInfo["FontEmbedding"] = "Subset";

    Is there any property through which we can set font encoding?.
    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Kumar Aditya

    Hello Kumar,

    Changing the used in the PDF file encoding is not supported by Telerik Reporting.

    You can test using Unicode fonts, or special fonts installed on the client's machine or fully embedded in the PDF document. For more details check the Design Considerations for PDF Rendering article (Font Requirements).


    I hope the above information helps you.
