    I am creating a RadDocument which I then pass to a PdfFormatProvider, export and then display in a PdfViewer. All data using latin characters displays fine. But if I pass in a Chinese name, which is basically two Chinese characters, the PdfViewer drops the 1st character and displays the 2nd character twice. So 振通 becomes 通通. Anyone else experienced this?

    Hi Luke,

    Unfortunately, RadDocument does not support Chinese characters in Silverlight. The fonts should be embedded in the document and this is not possible in Silverlight.

    Of course, you can try to use the WPF version of RadDocument and convert those documents server side. This will generate valid documents with embedded fonts and they should be visible not only in RadPdfViewer but in all major PDF viewers.

    Hope this will help you solve the issue.
