Support for asian characters in PDF

Turkish, Polish, Asian characters etc. aren't displayed in generated pdf. Like ı,ğ,ş,ç etc.

Special charachters: !, €, 30°, m³

Fixed, but still missing asian characters.

Asian characters: 日本語の文字!!


Statement from Kunagi Team

We need some help on this.

The PDFs are created with iText. We use Ubuntu as the default font and Liberation as the alternative for missing unicode symbols. Seams even Liberation does not include asian symbols.

Which free font ist the most complete for asian languages?


Issue is closed for Releases 0.18, 0.24.4.
