Creativex viewing PDF995 files - Problem with characters

Post by mcmullank » Fri Oct 28 2005

When I print a document to pdf using pdf995 and then view the same document in my VB application, the document appears properly. The code used to open the document is

pdfSuccess = pdfViewer.Open(pdfName, frm.txtPassword)

I then take the pdf that is stored in the activex control and save it to another location using the code:

Me.pdfViewer.save gScanFileDirectory + "\" + getGuid + ".pdf", 0

When you then re-load this into the viewer, parts of the document are replaced with hieroglyphics. Is this a know issue and can you explain why this is a problem. I can send you sample pdf files that demonstrate the issue.

Hello,

Does your document contain Unicode Characters?

The current version of the PDF Creator supports only viewing and printing of Unicode characters, but it doesn't support editing and saving Unicodes.
