[resolved] [Plugin: Gravity Forms PDF Extended] Unicode Support (7 posts)

    We are using Unicode Characters (Hindi) inside field names.
    But after exporting pdf from forms we get ?????? instead of नाम

    Can unicode support be added?

    Hi Arihant,

    The plugin is setup to already support unicode characters, however I believe Hindi isn't one of those.

    You can install a font of your choice to the PDF export engine but you'll need to follow the instructions on this website to do so:

    Once installed open the template.css file in the GF PDF Extended folder and add a font-family: 'your new font here' declaration to any element of your choosing - body would be a good choice.

    I forgot to mention the DOMPDF version is 0.6.0 beta 3.

    The problem is not completely solved, there is some issue with dompdf.

    What font did you install?

    Siddhanta - http://svayambhava.org/index.php/en/fonts

    I also tried
    Mangal - http://in.ffonts.net/Mangal.font.download
    But when using this font the whole pdf is blank, we can still select the text but its not visible. I also tried changing the color & font-size in the css file, but nothing worked.

    Did you check to make sure that font has the characters you are trying to output? If you install the font on your computer and use it in a word document with the text from the template you should be able to determine this.

    If the font does display everything correctly then I can only recommend you try again with the font installation instructions I posted earlier, just in case you missed something.

    If you would like me to get hands on with your WordPress Install and fix the problem then send an email to enquire@blueliquiddesigns.com.au and we can discuss the costs privately.
