Subject form filling - setValue - german umlauts are getting garbled
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 16:59:49 GMT

we recently started to use PDFBox 1.8.4 to fill PFDforms from a Java application.
If we call the setValue from PdField with a String containing german umlauts: äöüß

PDFBox garbles these characters to something like this: ̤̦ ̼̟

I searched the web for this problem but got no sufficient answer. As far as i understand there
is no option to set a field encoding?
Any help is highly appreciated

Best regards
