Greetings,

I've managed to use PDF Sharp on OS X with a custom font resolver – https://gist.github.com/haf/ef50a926eb7 ... 7a7c10c3c6 (MIT license), (you're welcome!).

Now, with this dep, I'm trying to make my PDF display all UTF-8 characters:

Code:
    PDFsharp-MigraDoc (1.50.4000-beta3b)


I can directly tell you that http://www.pdfsharp.net/wiki/Unicode-sample.ashx isn't applicable, because I'm both 1) using a template PDF, 2) using MigraDoc.

This is the code with which I load the template:

Code:
let createFromTemplate (template : PdfDocument) =
  let d = new PdfDocument()
  let page = d.AddPage(template.Pages.[0])
  let graphics = XGraphics.FromPdfPage page
  d, page, graphics


Here's the code that generates the PDF;

Code:
let createInvoice (template : PdfDocument) (invoice : Invoice) : PdfDocument =
  let doc, page, graphics = createFromTemplate template
  let mdoc = new Document()
  let sec = mdoc.AddSection()
  addLinesTable sec invoice
  // snip - more content generation into MigraDoc.Document

  let drenderer = new DocumentRenderer(mdoc)
  drenderer.PrepareDocument()
  for i in 0 .. drenderer.FormattedDocument.PageCount - 1 do
    drenderer.RenderPage(graphics, i + 1)

  doc


It gives output...

Code:
let qvitooCust : BuyerParty =
  { name = "Utmärkta Övningar AB"
    address =
      { lines =
        [ "Åsögatan 10B"
          "411 19 Göteborg"
          "SWEDEN"
        ]
      }
    refPerson = "Åsa Höglund"
  }

I've also tried to follow http://www.pdfsharp.net/wiki/HelloMigraDoc-sample.ashx (and hours worth of googling PDFSharp + Unicode) which ends up looking like this:

Code:
let createFromTemplate (template : PdfDocument) =
  let d = new PdfDocument()
  let page = d.AddPage(template.Pages.[0])
  let graphics = XGraphics.FromPdfPage page
  graphics.MUH <- PdfFontEncoding.Unicode
  d, page, graphics

let createInvoice (template : PdfDocument) (invoice : Invoice) : PdfDocument =
  let doc, page, graphics = createFromTemplate template
  let mdoc = new Document()
  let sec = mdoc.AddSection()
  // snip
  let pdfrenderer = new PdfDocumentRenderer((* utf8 *) true)
  pdfrenderer.Document <- mdoc
  pdfrenderer.RenderDocument()
  let drenderer = new DocumentRenderer(mdoc)
  drenderer.PrepareDocument()
  for i in 0 .. drenderer.FormattedDocument.PageCount - 1 do
    drenderer.RenderPage(graphics, i + 1)
  doc


Which gives this output:

Btw, that sample is outdated; the c'tor with character embedding is gone (deprecated https://github.com/empira/MigraDoc/blob ... rer.cs#L68)

I have verified that the font I'm importing supports other-than-ASCII chars.

Help would be much appreciated.

Those characters work under Windows, so I assume this problem is related to the OSX implementation of .NET or whatever.
