Did you resolve your issue I am facing similar kind of problem also when the PDF document is generated (downloaded to PC) the thai script is shown as tiny box.
1. Thai language on the document takes lot of spaces
2. When download the document the thai script is shown as boxes.
Please share your experience if you were able to resolve this.
Dear Khushboo, Jag
I have observed that tThe tiny boxes that are appearing in the Smartform text element is only occuring when you are printing a variable whose content is thai and nothing else with that. by nothing else i mean no THAI hardcoded text.
if you try and check you will observe that when you try to print something like this in your Text element
with your paragraph format alright/ output device and device type everythng in place
ของผู้มีเงินได้ &G_VAR& -
is printing alright : content of G_VAR is thai characters
but if you are printing just the variable
&G_VAR& --- it will print boxes
to overcome this after trying no.of checks / online helps / settings etc etc which , ofcourse, did not help
I did a lil bit trick with the system
You can create a character format in your smartstyle with FONT : THANGSAN and maintain the COLOR as white
now go to your text element key in a THAI character at the start or end of you variable and assign your new character format to that character. and Eureka! it will work
eg: <CF> ข </> &G_VAR& - --- seen in your change editor
where CF is the new "colorless" character format I have asked you to create.
Thanks and Regards,
