Arabic characters not printed in Linux

Good evening,

I’m working with Aspose.Words for Java to fill in and print a bilingual English/Arabic Word document to PDF. However, the result is missing all the Arabic characters (see attachments for the original .doc file and the printed PDF).

If I print the same document to PDF with Open Office it works fine. Is there any way I can gather more information about why the issue happens and how to fix it?

My setup is:
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Tue Aug 18 15:51:48 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Oracle Weblogic Server
JDK 1.4
Aspose Words 14.2.0 for JDK 1.4

Hi Michel,

Thanks for your
inquiry. Please note that Aspose.Words requires TrueType fonts when
rendering documents to fixed-page formats (PDF, XPS or SWF). Make sure
you have all the Fonts installed on your machine you’re using to convert
Word document to PDF format. I would suggest you please read the
following articles:


I would suggest you please upgrade to the latest version (v14.3.0) from here
and let us know how it goes on your side. Hope this helps you.
