    Hello everyone,

    We are using the RadRichTextEditor as a document creation tool for our users. Once the document is created, we export it to PDF using the standard pdf export provider. The issue here is that fonts used in the RadDocument do not get embedded into the PDF file.

    I've already contacted support about this and a feedback item has been created, but we are really left dead in the water without the ability to embed fonts (since our clients often view the pdf on mobile devices). Has anyone found a workaround to this?

    More detail here:

    Hello Tom,

    Thank you for writing.

    The possible solution that I can suggest is to export the RadRixhTextEditor's content to a docx file. Afterwards, use the RadWordsProcessing library to import the file and export it to a pdf. You can refer to the following links related to this topic:
    1. Export RadRichTextEditor's content to docx: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/richtexteditor-import-export.html
    2. Import the docx file: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/wordsprocessing-formats-and-conversion-docx-using-docxformatprovider.html
    3. Export to pdf with embedded font: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/wordsprocessing-formats-and-conversion-docx-using-pdfformatprovider.html

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
