We are flattening the Acrobat forms using the PDF library. We remove the form fields and place the text using 'PDETextAdd'.

One of our client has Acro forms in Arabic (Saudi). The font used is UTF-8 format. font name is TimesNewRomanPSMT which is embedded in the PDF.

While flattening this text we used the font created using 'CreateFontFromCosObj'. We also used 'Identity-H' encoding for fonts.

We could not succeed in writing the text in Arabic using 'PDETextAdd'.

What is the correct way of adding Arabic text to PDF using PDFLIb?

We are using English version of XP and have enabled the suppor for Arabic language from 'Regional Language support'.

Thanks.
