HI, All

Who tried to use PDF creation on Android ?
Any success with national letters ?
I mean with using standard fonts like Times, Courier..., not Asian fonts that allow the codepage adjusting to UTF8.

Asian fonts are very wide (but on Android viewer looks good ! comparing to PC in Acrobat).
How to save to UTF8 universally (any text), but with some standard font ?

I am also looking for similar, did you find a solution??
I finally decided to use so: generate the text line with national letters as the Bitmap, and create PDF by such lines - non-editable, read-only PDF.
But Google Analytics now shows that there are many OutOfMemory errors on some devices, depending on the doc length :-(
