Good morning,

When going through the PDF with PdfProcessing, it gives me weird text in some elements which I presume is metadata of the pdf.
As for other PDFs who are not created out of Telerik it works fine...

I also checked the Telerik forum a lot, desperately finding a possible and proper solution/alternative for this, but unfortunately.   

I just simply need to read normal text out of my Telerik report, I don't want to export the text, I only wanna extract that text so I can draw an image under it.

My question is simple : Does Telerik have solutions to deal with this issue?

I have attached a snippet of my problem when I'm debugging in Visual Studio and the Telerik Report I try to read.
Thanks

Kurt Berlanger

Hi Kurt,

It seems like you are hitting a known limitation of PdfProcessing which is causing the observed behavior. The documents exported from Telerik Reporting contain ToUnicode CMap definitions which are not supported in PdfProcessing, causing issues when trying to read the text in the document. We have logged a task to implement this functionality and you can vote for it as well as subscribe to track its status using the related public item: PdfProcessing: Import and export of ToUnicode CMap. The item contains a suggestion for working around that using the PdfViewer control for WPF. I hope that this would be an option for you.

Hello Tanya,

 

Many thanks. This is the exact direction I'm actually searched for.

I tested a view times with it and always succeeded.

 

Btw I will proceed to extend the Telerik license in August.

 

Yours sincerely,
