Export to pdf is not readable

Chris asked on May 29, 2019

Hello.
We have problems with export to pdf and I found that multilingual export to pdf from your examples also is not working correctly: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/ftrkeojj/
Pdf file is not readable (check attachment pdf) and here is screenshot: https://screencast.com/t/nCjrJuuPnYt
 
1) Is it a known issue?
2) Are you planning to fix that and when?
 
Thanks,
Chris

Hello, Chris,
 
We are glad to announce that exporting the Unicode characters to PDF is now supported. It means that from now on you can save PDF reports in Chinese, Arabic or any other language without any problems. To do this, you only need to provide an appropriate TTF font file while using exportTo() API call. Also, we have prepared a list of ready-to-use Google Noto Fonts that you can use to support almost any language in the world.
 
Please note, that only fonts in standard TTF format are supported. Example of usage:

flexmonster.exportTo('pdf', {
  fontUrl: 'https://cdn.flexmonster.com/fonts/NotoSansCJKtc-Regular.ttf'
});

 
Check out an updated localization demo on JSFiddle.

The new feature is available in the 2.7.7 version of Flexmonster.
You are welcome to update the component.
 
Please let us know if everything works fine.
 
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
 
Best Regards,
Vera
