Tabstops not working if TextFragment spans multiple lines

Hi Team,

I’m facing a problem around TextFragments and tab stops. They are working fine if the text in the TextFragment is short enough to fit in one line. However, if the text is a bit longer and gets wrapped into multiple lines, the tab characters are being written out as plain text and not replaced at all.

Also, is there a reason behind e.g. TabLeaderType.Solid not being rendered unless the textfragment’s text is underlined?



Are you using the latest version of the API? Would you please share the sample code snippet with us so that we can try to replicate the issue in our environment and address it accordingly?

Yes, I’m using 22.10.0.

var pdfDocument = new Document();
var tabStops = new TabStops();
tabStops.Add(new TabStop(200) { LeaderType = TabLeaderType.Solid });
var textFragment = new TextFragment("Very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very veryveryvery long text #$TAB", tabStops);
textFragment.TextState.Underline = true;
var page = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();

Somehow I should be able to achieve a similar behavior.
