Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4402) Write RTL text in reversed order
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2018 07:25:00 GMT

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4402:
-----------------------------------------

PDFBox doesn't support RTL text. At this time all you can do is to reverse the string and
use that one. Does that work or does it look weird?

> I use PDPageContentStream.showText() to write string to PDF.  It doesn't work for RTL
text, for example Hebrew, all text are written in reversed order.  See attached example screenshot.
