Hi Gaurav,

Thanks for your patience.

Please note that Aspose.Words requires TrueType fonts when rendering documents to fixed-page formats (JPEG, PNG, PDF or XPS). You need to install fonts that are used in your document on the machine where you're converting documents to PDF. Please refer to the following article:

After investigating this issue, we have noticed that you are facing this issue due to missing fonts "Arial Unicode MS" and "DotumChe". Please install these fonts to get the correct output. Please let us know if you have any more queries.

Hello,


Thanks for your reply.
Can you provide DotumChe font or a link may be for linux?

Thanks.

I just installed Arial Unicode MS and the problem is solved.


Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your inquiry. You can try Google Noto Fonts which is a collection of fonts that cover most of the ranges specified in the Unicode standard. Hope this helps you.
