Subject Using PDFBox to write strings to a file, some characters not showing
Date Sat, 18 May 2013 02:23:11 GMT
I am using PDFBox to write/replace strings to an existing PDF file and am having intermittent
oddities occur where random characters will not display.  After researching the files it appears
the characters are in place but not showing, almost as if they are formatted to white text.
 I can select the character's slot, copy and paste it into notepad, and the correct character
is returned.  Not sure if attachments work, but I have attached an example page in case they
do.  I am just not sure if I am missing something.  When I process through the page tokens
there doesn't appear to be anything other than a string field in play.
