I have PDF file, i tried to append some text to it using program from samples. (Unicode) After it worked there are errors in document (fonts are embedded with errors, and there are only dots instead of text)

Here are steps to reproduce:
1) Get this file http://www.uploading.com/files/KTG63HP6/form2.pdf.html
2) Open Unicode program from Samples C# folder (or use code below)
3) Change lines so that:
// Create new document
PdfDocument document = PdfReader.Open(@"c:\form2.pdf");
(here comes your path to file)
4) scroll down till you see pages that were added by code and see the result (and acrobat's error)

Code to test:

class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
// Create new document
PdfDocument document = PdfReader.Open(@"c:\form2.pdf");

// Set unicode flag to true
XPdfFontOptions options = new XPdfFontOptions(PdfFontEncoding.Unicode,PdfFontEmbedding.Always);

XFont font = new XFont("Times New Roman", 12, XFontStyle.Regular, options);

// Draw text in different languages
for (int idx = 0; idx < texts.Length; idx++)
PdfPage page = document.AddPage();
XGraphics gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(page);
XTextFormatter tf = new XTextFormatter(gfx);
tf.Alignment = XParagraphAlignment.Justify;

tf.DrawString(texts[idx], font, XBrushes.Black,
new XRect(100, 100, page.Width - 200, 600), XStringFormat.TopLeft);

string filename = "Unicode.pdf";
// Save the document...
// ...and start a viewer.

static string[] texts = new string[]
// International version of the text in English

We cannot replicate this problem with current builds of PDFsharp.

A new version of PDFsharp will be publicly available during summer 2008.
