Hi Chuck,

A possible reason for the experienced issue could be if the export font does not contain these symbols.

I suggest you try setting the DefaultFontFamily of the RadGrid's Pdf ExportSettings. You can set that property in the markup declaration or in the code-behind, see Fonts / Unicode support

ASPX code

<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server">
    <ExportSettings>
        <Pdf DefaultFontFamily="Arial Unicode MS" />
    </ExportSettings>

 

Code-behind

 

RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.DefaultFontFamily = "Arial Unicode MS";

 

The most common international font is Arial Unicode MS because it covers all Unicode characters but you also may use any other font that will fit your needs. You can also try using Arial as it normally is built-in font.

I hope this will help

Kind regards,
Doncho
