Multi byte Special characters not getting displayed in PDF


Hi Team,

I am using Aspose license for PDF (in java). In my application I am trying to export a PDF having some multi byte characters. But it is unable to display it properly.

Below is my code.
I did try with multiple fonts to check whether below characters are supported by that font but did not find any luck.
Please help here which font support Special characters mentioned in code ?

Document doc = new Document();
PageInfo pageInfo = doc.getPageInfo();
Page curPage = doc.getPages().add();
Paragraphs paragraphs = curPage.getParagraphs();
Font textFont = FontRepository.openFont(Demo.class.getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream(“fonts/ARIALUNI.TTF”), FontTypes.TTF);
TextFragment textFragment = new TextFragment();
textFragment.setText(“𩝭 SADDAM HUSSEIN 𠇔𣁋𩝭𤫟𤪤𪁏𩗗 sdfjkdf SADDAM HUSSEIN”);
TextFragment textFragment2 = new TextFragment();
textFragment2.setText(“𩝭 SADDAM HUSSEIN 𠇔𣁋𩝭𤫟𤪤𪁏𩗗 sdfjkdf SADDAM HUSSEIN”);



Thanks for contacting support.

We have tested the scenario in our environment using Aspose.PDF for Java 19.1 and were able to replicate the issue. The issue seemed related to font which can support the language characters which you are adding to the PDF page. We also tried using different fonts (e.g. Arial Unicode MS, SimSun, NSimSun, MingLiU, MingLiU-Ext, Mitr) but could not get much success.

We have logged an investigation ticket as PDFJAVA-38311 in our issue tracking system for the sake of detailed investigation. We will further check the issue in details and keep you posted with the status of ticket resolution. Please be patient and spare us little time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
