Unicode Font Name Not Properly Embedded in Converted PDF


We are experiencing an issue converting a Word document when we use a font where the internal name of the font (such as would appear on the font picker dropdown in Word, not the actual file name) is in unicode characters. When this happens the name of the font is not correctly encoded in the resulting PDF file. When we try to open the file it will display correctly in Google Chrome, but not in other readers (such as Adobe and PDF Exchange).

I have attached a sample document, the font we are using, and screenshots with highlighting displaying how Aspose writes the font name (incorrect) and how Word’s export to PDF functionality writes the font name (correct).

We have also tested with the latest version of Aspose.Words (18.12) and the issue is still a problem.

Thank you for any assistance you can render.
