Problem Creating PDF with Cyrillic Characters


Good morning.

I'm trying to create a PDF from a internal table (so far not a problem 😊 ). The problem comes when the characters are in Cyrillic (in this case Bulgarian).

After creating the PDF, the characters that appear are nothing like what they should be. Can someone help me please ?

After creating the PDF, this is sent by email.

Here is the program I have:

REPORT  zzt_rjm_3.

       go_send_request         TYPE REF TO cl_bcs,
       gt_text                              TYPE bcsy_text,
       gt_bin_content               TYPE solix_tab,
       gs_bin_content              LIKE LINE OF gt_bin_content,
       go_document                 TYPE REF TO cl_document_bcs,
