Why PDF creator does not show special character properly ?

Post by kamleshvgujarathi » Thu Mar 24 2005

Hello,

Download the fw4.pdf from IRS site of USA and open it in PDF creator control and the first page "Personal Allowance Section". In that

there are A to H points and in A B C E F points there sentance start with
Enter "1" ............ Okay
------------

But when we open this pdf in the Pdf creator control in VB6.0 it shows the
BOXES at the place of double quotes. this the problem
-------------------------------------------

Let me know how can I resolve this problem.

if you want to see the difference then open the fw4.pdf in the ADOBE 6.0 and Amyuni Application then see the difference.

waiting for your reply .

Thanks

This will typically happen if the quotes are written in Unicode characters.

The current version of the PDF Creator doesn't fully support Unicode characters.

I didn't check the file you are mentioning myself so I can't say if this file has unicode characters or not or if it is generated with multilanguage option on or not.
