    Hi,

    For the spool you try to convert to PDF, which device type was this spool created by. It must be created via a Chinese device type like e.g. CNSAPWIN. The form used to create the spool must have language key ZH. The fonts used in the form for the Chinese characters must be a Chinese font like CNSONG or CNHEI.

    Alternatively, if you create the spool via Unicode deviec type SWINCF, then the font and the form language are not important. It should work to convert the spool to PDF regardless of the language ley or font used in the form.

    Hi,

    The junk characters in spool during PDF conversion is only due to improper conversion.

    Please make sure that you capture all the data during PDF conversion and also please specify the BYTE count for sure in order to avoid these junk characters.
