Hi Alex -

Ok, thanks for that information - I'll be sure to tell clients to use 'copy with formatting' to resolve the issue.

Re: ShowTextBlock strips out spaces in strings

Hi Alex - Our clients do not necessarily use your editor, so that option is not available to us or to them. They will most likely use Acrobat Reader to copy the text we add to the PDF. Either way, I really need a solution that creates actual spaces, and not just the appearance of spaces. This way, i...

Re: ShowTextBlock strips out spaces in strings

Hi Alex -

We use the Core API, not the Editor.

What does this method do anyway?
By the description it looks like it's simply using Justification (which is not what we want).

Is there an equivalent Method in the API ?

Hi Alex - I can't provide a sample as our code is way too complex.
