Problem with special characters

Hi everybody!

I have a little problem with special characters and the “Save As” function. When I draw a histogram, I am able to include characters such as Ä, Ü etc. However, when I save this histogram as pdf or ps, these characters are not included.
They only show up when I save the picture as pixel graphics.

I am using root version 5.18.00b on CentOS 5.2.

Does anybody know a solution to this?

Thank you very much,
Michael

This should be fixed in 5.20. See the paragraph “PostScript” in:
root.cern.ch/root/v520/Version52 … tml#graf2d

I just did a similar mod in the svn trunk. So now it also works for PDF files.

Ah great, I just wanted to post, that in works with ps/eps and I now use epstopdf to create my pdf files. Good to know, that it also works with pdfs in the next release.

Thank you very much!
