I am trying to provide for Asian (CJK) language support in my application. While chinese works out well, the TTF embedding feature doesn’t help in case of Korean or Japanese.
I followed all the steps mentioned in the online help for generating pd4fonts.properties for these font files.
In the server logs I can see font files getting resolved. Example, for japanese text, MSminchu.ttf is being loaded (as per the logs), but the generated PDF contains “??????” throughout and the PDF properties – > Font, doesn’t show me msminchu font being loaded.
When I deliberately try to load chinese font for Japanese text, then I can see some of the content coming fine (that is because Chinese and Japanese languages share some symbols), but ofcourse that would not be a good solution.
What could be going wrong here? I have been at it for a longtime now. Please help!!
