Hi,

We're using 2015.1.225.45  Telerik version to export graphics bar from RADHtmlChart to PDF. We have a javascript handler to export it with the following code:

$find('<%=RadClientExportManager1.ClientID%>').exportPDF($(".RadHtmlChart"));

The graphics bar have some text with accents. On the browser, the text is shown correctly but on the exported PDF, the text with accents has errors. 

You can confirm this comparing the images graphics_bar_browser.png and graphics_bar_PDF.png attached to this thread.

It looks like there's some encoding problem or the font being used does not supports accent characters

Best Regards,

AMBISIG

Hello,

In order to export content containing special characters (letters with accents in your case) a font supporting Unicode characters has to be added to the application and set to the exported element. Our Export special characters demo shows how this can be done. In it we use the CODE2000 font but other fonts like Arial MS Unicode will work as well.
In your scenario in addition to adding the font to the ClientExportManager's Fonts collection the font has to be set to the Chart labels as well:
<TextStyle FontFamily="CODE2000" />
