Export PDF in french language => ??


i would to troubleshoot a problem we have when we want to export a PDF in french language, the é è à etc are not exported correctly. I already find this page but it's not helping me. 


I don't know if i need to choose a specific font to install but the page is made directly in confluence with "paragraph" 

It's what we have in confluence :

The PDF :

An idea?? The font seems to be completely different...


Thanks !

you need to install font which fully support french characters. We had this problem also with czech characters on several customer instances.

Thanks but when it's exporting, i suppose we need to tell which font use for export, right? Do you know how we define it? Thanks !

You need to go DOMAIN/admin/flyingpdf/configurepdflanguagesupport.action

There upload a font file


For details look at

I installed font Verdana and added 

content: "Document Title Goes Here"; /* This is the content that will appear in the header */
font-family: ConfluenceInstalledFont, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 8pt;


in Global PDF Stylesheet but there is not change. I changed the font-size to 40 pt just for the test but there is no change. Have i forgotten something?


Thanks !

And did you try a way that I wrote (with deleting changes in stylesheet)?

I uploaded the font on the page /admin/flyingpdf/configurepdflanguagesupport.action

and change the PDF stylesheet, whats is missing?
