Hi caster,

OTF (Output Text Format) contains control characters i.e. to define graphics and is not meant for direct display purposes.

It must be coverted by a printer driver or other porgram or function before it is output.

Hi Clemens,

The Raw Data that my smartform is generating consist of boxes and chinese characters, I think this is not the what a raw data should look like. As i convert this otf to a pdf file, the created pdf file is corrupted. Do you know any solution on this? Is this might be a configutration problem?.
