Problem with AddText method


I have been experiencing a frustrating problem when using the AddText method;

Depending upon the exact content of the string expression I wish to write, either:-

1. The line is "chopped off" shorter than it should be, so that some text is missing; or

2. Characters/Glyphs are printed overlaying one other instead of in a consecutive sequence.

I am using a licensing version;

I will be very happy to post the Source Code and/or contents of my VB.NET solution.

Can anyone please help?

With thanks,

Hi Shahzad,

I think I may have resolved my own problem, by using the FormattedText object, and passing it to the AddText method.

However I also notice that when I open the final PDF document, using Acrobat Standard 6, the Text has been written to the document such that the Adobe Software interprets it as a Form Field, or similar.

So when I click on the rendered text, a slightly-skewed shadow image of the Text appears underneath it, and I can type my own text into the box!

This is not what I anticipated, as my project requires Read-Only documents, not the creation of PDF fields. Can you advise further?

With thanks
