German special signs ("Umlaute" i.e. ä ö ü ß) missing

Post by NoSi » Fri May 08, 2009 8:11 am

Hi.

In current version 4.0161 of PDFXChange driver, german umlauts of Type1- and some OTF-fonts are not correctly encoded in pdf. PDF-XChange viewer displayes correct, Acrobat Reader 7 displays correct font but not umlauts, Foxit (current 3) uses alternative font (Arial), regardless export settings (Version 1.3 - 1.7).

I remember an early release of 4.x behaving so, previous version worked fine.

Regards,
NoSi

Most fixed in 4.0162, only CAPS fonts display not correct - lower are left out. This happens regardless to viewer (Adobe, Foxit, Tracker).

No bug. I made a mistake with fonts. Fixed my font folder with correct font files and everything looks great now.

Thanks.
