Chinese characters SIMSUN cannot be bold or italics

I am trying to create chinese characters pdf using SimSun fonts. It can generate the chinese words but all these words cannot be bold ?? any help


Please make sure SimSun Bold and Italics fonts are already installed in system.

Currently Aspose.PDF has the limit that a font must be installed in system if you want to get it shown on PDF document.

Is there any where that I could get hold of this installation file? Or is there any other chinese character suggestion you got?

I need this file urgently could you help please. You could even direct me to website which I can buy them. Thanks a lot.

You can use a font editer such as FontForge ( to make the fonts. Here is a chinese article about how to make bold and italic fonts: Please make sure to name the Name For Humans as SimSun Bold, SimSun Itatic and SimSun Bold Italic.

BTW, If you have used font map (pdf.TruetypeFontMapPath), you should delete the Aspose.Pdf.TruetypeFontMap.xml file and let it be regenerated so that the new fonts can be used.

If you still can't make it work please let us know.
