this library is no longer mantained and it is not on sync with latest JPdfJet releases. i recommend this one:

https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/pdfjet-rewrapped.89973/

i do not give manteinence also but you have access to the source code that is written in B4x JavaObject.

then to craete a Font with unicode support you only need to do this:

B4X:
   Dim ins As InputStream = File.OpenInput(File.DirAssets,"timesbd.ttf")

   Dim font2 As jetFont
   font2.Initialize
   font2.Initialize2(pdf,ins,"UNICODE")
