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.
