Not with the usual ones like
ž š
but with
ū ş ı ć č ř ě ň
they are Indian, Latvian, Czech, I suppose, some others may still appear from other users, utf_8_general_ci collation preserves them perfectly in xlm and csv, only pdf fails.
Thanks!

Hi,
I have found your reply
"...
You basically need to unzip the file attached and copy the 3 files inside into /administrator/components/com_breezingforms/libraries/tcpdf/fonts/

Then open the file /components/com_breezingforms/facileforms.process.php and find the line that says

$pdf = new TCPDF();

Best search for "TCPDF".

Then, right after this line, add a new line:

$pdf->SetFont('dejavusans');

This would be for the attachments.

Now for the exports in manage records, do the same in the file /administrator/components/com_breezingforms/admin/recordmanagement.class.php
...
"
I tested it right now and all caracters I mentioned behave well
Thanks a lot!

For other users: I used
www.crosstec.org/media/kunena/attachment...gacy/files/fonts.zip
to download fonts

Hi,
there is still one little problem, pdf export and attachment work fine, except for the case when pdf attachemnt is created by my own file, i.e. when
formname_pdf_attachment.php
is used instead of
pdf_attachment.php

Could you help me with this issue?
Thanks in advance
Zuzana

Problem solved, I forgot that I had a similar file in after pieces code, because I wanted to rename the pdf accourding to user id, therefore I just included
$pdf->SetFont('dejavusans');
in my code after
$pdf = new TCPDF();
and it works!
