Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (PDFBOX-3138) PDTextField doesn't accept any Hebrew characters as new value

If you can embed the font as a CIDFontType0 instead of Type1 then PDFBox will be able to find
the Hebrew glyphs. Failing that, try creating the field with some placeholder Hebrew text
in it - that might trigger Type 0 font embedding.

Once you have that working, you'll need to reorder the Hebrew string visually before embedding
it in the PDF, as PDFBox doesn't know about RTL. Java's [Bidi|http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/text/Bidi.html]
class has a method which can do this for you. You'll have to draw the RTL strings glyph-by-glyph
in reverse.
