I have some drawing files with updates and when I go to print to PDF the notes with Japanese symbols show up as blank squares.
I attached a picture, anything anyone can do would be great.
You can stroke all fonts when exporting PDF. Creo transforms letters into lines and PDF will contain correct output.
If you do not want stroke fonts, then you can set PRO_LANG variable to japanese, launch Creo and export PDF.
If you do not want to set PRO_LANG variable, then you need to add config.pro option intf2d_out_pdf_unicode yes and use specific Creo release, see https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS153898
Creo 2.0 M140, Creo 3.0 M020, Wildfire 5.0 M260
I chose to use the config.pro option, but how do you set the "stroke all fonts" when exporting to PDF?
you can set "stroke all fonts" option:
1: reconfig the creo to add the japanees font while installing it,
2. Important thing is Go to Control panel - Environmental variable- edit environemental variable-system variable-add new-variable name and variable value,. Variable name: "LANG" (must be caps)
Variable value 'japanese" (mut be in small).
it work out for sure,
reach me if it is not.
can you see Japanese characters when you open drawing in Creo ?
