Subject:        Problem with PDFont.getStringWidth()

Dear all,

I've the following problem with PDFbox. I try to paint a rectangle with 
PDPageContentStream and then put a figure in the center of this rectangle.

Therefore I try to calculate the width of the text. The Method 
getStringWidth returns everytime the same width for all figures. That 
means that I get the same result for "12" and "32". Because the "1" is 
smaller than the "3" something is not correct and my "12" is a bit to 

What is the reason for this?

I get the Font with the following code:
private PDFont getFont() throws IOException {
  return PDType1Font.HELVETICA;
