Subject [jira] Commented: (PDFBOX-679) Corruption of Arabic output due to Japanese bug fix
Date Tue, 06 Apr 2010 17:07:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-679?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12854066#action_12854066

Andreas Lehmkühler commented on PDFBOX-679:

With version 931224 the converter isn't used if an unicode mapping is given.

@Yigal: Please test that version, if possible. I guess it is easier for you to check the result,
as I'm not able to read arabic.

> The recent Japanese bug fix in org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDFont
> defines a set of encoding names that are given special CJK treatment. This set is too
broad. For example, it stipulates that the 'Identity-H' encoding should be processed as JIS.
> We have Arabic PDFs where compound Arabic glyphs use the 'Identity-H' encoding. In pdfBox
1.0.0 they used to output Arabic but now they output garbage, because the Arabic unicode data
is sent to the CJK converter.
