Which OS are you using?(assuming the latest podfo is being used)
Do you have "Arial MS Unicode" installed in your system?
If “Arial MS Unicode” is not installed please use some other font, which 
supports all Unicode characters. Also please set the encoding to identity

Subject: [Podofo-users] DrawText & Unicode

Hello Podofo Users,

I'm want to add a small text disclaimer to the first page of a document:

// Set page disclaimer
PdfPainter pdfPainter;
PdfFont* pFont = m_pDocument->CreateFont("Arial");

PdfPage* pPage = m_pDocument->GetPage(0);
pdfPainter.SetPage( pPage );

pdfPainter.SetFont( pFont );
pdfPainter.GetFont()->SetFontSize( PAGE_DISLAIMER_SIZE );
pdfPainter.SetColor( 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ); // black

PdfRect rect = pPage->GetMediaBox();
PoDoFo::PdfString disclaimer_inutf8(reinterpret_cast<const 
pdfPainter.DrawText( rect.GetLeft(), rect.GetBottom() + rect.GetHeight() - 
PAGE_DISLAIMER_SIZE, disclaimer_inutf8 );


The code works for normal text, but it fails to draw unicode characters.
I consulted the corresponding test code and saw that there's a unicode font 

PdfFont* pFont = m_pDocument->CreateFont("Arial MS Unicode");
Unfortunately, I get a NULL pointer from this call. Is there anything I can do 
except downloading a font,
because this is not an option, the code should work without installing 
additional things.
Thanks in advance
