    Are the accents (like é, è...) supported by the RadPdfViewer ?

    When enterning accents characters in interactive forms (fugure1) and then exitting the text box, characters aren't rendered (figure2)

    After saving and reopening the pdf document the edit shows inconstent content (figure3)

    Hi Ali,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    When there are any accent characters presented in the PDF document, a custom character mapping is used to extract the actual text. However, when the document doesn't define a character mapping, the text is extracted with wrong characters. We have logged a feedback item in our portal: Text is extracted with wrong characters when there is Simple Font without ToUnicode mapping, where you can subscribe to be notified for any status updates. I am sorry I cannot provide you with any workaround for this issue.

    Regards,

    Hello Ali,

    The pdf should have a defined ToUnicode mapping based on the PDF specification. There might be a way to create such a pdf using Adobe Acrobat Pro, for example or some other PDF creation tool.
    I've found this ToUnicode mapping File tutorial that you might find helpful.
