Function PrintPDFDocument() prints garbage characters

Post by wd818 » Tue Mar 03 2009

When the function PrintPDFDocument() prints out certain PDF files, lots of weird characters are instroduced to replace the original text. In some files, it is so bad that the print out is not readable at all.

The version we use is 3.0.3, it is used as a dll in our MFC application.

Can someone help?

Hello

The issue that you are encountering is file specific and in order to successfully provide a solution to your issue we would need to look at the PDF files.
You would need to contact our support department with the documents for assistance.

Hi,
We have the same problem : PrintPDFDocument() prints out certain PDF files, lots of weird characters are instroduced to replace the original text.
On some pc from our application when we print PDF generated from Amyuni PDF Converter with PrintPDFDocument, we obtain garbage characters in all pdf.
We have Amyuni PDF Converter 4.0.1.1 :roll:

Same problem, we have to set a config flag to switch to ShellExecute( "print") over Acrobat Reader to overcome the problem

Thanks Davide,
I also worked around using ShellExecute with the print, but I have other problems because it is asynchronous, and some printers
can lock the application ("virtual printers" as Amyuni o CutePDF) ... Amyuni's technicians cannot run correct this 'PrintPDFDocument'?
I try to attach these files but the system does'nt allow attach pdf (!!)

To what type of printer are you printing your PDF? One thing to note is that if the PDF contains embedded fonts, you need to make sure the printing is completed before deleting the CDIntf or PDFCreactiveX instances.
