    Hi there, Please help me solve this problem

    I'm working with the exporting the RadDocument into different file format.(HTML,Docx,PDF)
    I have data in the table which are both English and Thai language(My native language). At this time, exporting to HTML and Docx work fine. However, when I export this into PDF, the table cell that has a Thai text becomes unreadable (It becomes a kind of square text or something). I already set a font family (such as MS Arial Unicode) in which Thai language can be used but exporting still failed.

    The source code of setting font is some kind like this.

                Telerik.Windows.Documents.Model.Span span = new Telerik.Windows.Documents.Model.Span();
                span.FontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial Unicode MS");
                paragraph.TextAlignment = Telerik.Windows.Documents.Layout.RadTextAlignment.Center;

    Do I need to thing set something else?

    Hello Woramin,

    Unfortunately, PDF export of some more complex languages like Thai is currently not supported. This feature has not been scheduled yet, so I cannot provide you with a specific timeline if and when it will be implemented.

    That's OK. Because only if I know reason behind this problem, I can explain this situation with my supervisor.

    Thanks again for your explanation

    Are there any updates on this? 

    I have an urgent need to support Unicode PDF exports in my application.

    Hi Kjell,

    We are currently looking into this task and it is very likely to have it soon in progress.

    However, we cannot state an exact time frame for its completion, as there may be some underground rocks along the way.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
