Also i tried this in my dev environment.
Then I was displayed password security box, and I was not able to open PDF. Is this another issue?
I used the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2010.
I tried to do live examples in my pc.

Hello Mikiya,

When exporting Unicode symbols, you should apply some Unicode Font that the PDF exporter tool supports. Here is an example:

<span style="font-family: times new roman;">κατι</span>
<span style="line-height: 115%; font-size: 22pt; font-family: times new roman; color: #7f0000;">&kappa;&alpha;&tau;&iota;</span>

You can see this Grid live demo and help article for more information on PDF export:

Thank you reply.

It was possible to export with RadGrid.  But RadEditor was cannot.
I tried copy & past your html code snippet to the live example page. ( http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/pdfexport/defaultcs.aspx)
Then, I clicked "Export RadEditor content to PDF" button. I still see ### character in the PDF file.

Should I set anything to the RadEditor?

My PDF reader is "ADOBE READER 9" (Version 9.3.2)

Hello Mikiya Sato,

I am also using the same version 9.3.2 of Adobe Reader and I am able to export the provided Greek characters. You can see my test in this demo:
http://screencast.com/t/ZGYyZmI3

I am not sure why the third party HTML to PDF exporter tool does not work on your end. If you unable to export the Japanese content you can try to integrate another free or paid third party HTML to PDF converter. You can see how to do that in the following demo: Converting RadEditor HTML to PDF format.

Best regards,

I found 2 issues.

1. chrome
It works on IE8 and Firefox3. But it doesn't work on chrome browser.
Copied your html code. chrome is converted span's style automatically . [ font-family: times new roman ] was changed [font-family: 'times new roman' ]
It's not exported correctly at this time.

2. symbols is ok.  but  japanese unicode charactor is not correctly exported. here is my tested code.

<span style="font-family: arial unicode ms;">漢字</span> 


Thank you.

Hi Mikiya,

I logged both problems in our PITS system and we will do our best to provide support for PDF export for Japanese characters. I also updated your Telerik points for reporting these problems.

You can check the status of our development at http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/aspnet-ajax/2278.
