Thanks, Shnoulle!

I have try to use it. Really, the top of PDF files now in cyrillic! It's cool! :)

But the characters in string "Быстрая статистика" ("Quick statistics") in the top
and in the headers of tables are allocated is too close to each other:



It doesn't looks fine.

And the second problem from that issue isn't solved: there are question marks in Mac OS and empty squares in Win instead the spaces before and after the strings still in menu of PDF viewer. :(



Limesurvey inserts this spaces automatically when admin places cursor to the "Question" field writing the text of the question.

Thanks a lot, with the new statistics file and fonts that I've build using TCPDF, PDF export works properly. :)

Is it possible to include this utf8 cyrillic fonts and instruction txt file to the new build of Limesurvey ("/admin/classes/tcpdf/fonts/" directory)? It shall help users of Cyrillic languages to make PDF export immediately after the installation of LimeSurvey. :side:

The archive with fonts and instructions is here: utf8_cyr_msfonts.tar.gz

THanks, t34.

Please open a issue in our bug/patch tracker and attach the file.
Most probably we won't be able to include it because of the sheer size.
The other thing is that you should also check the copyright on the source fonts, before you attach it.
Best regards

OK, I have change the fonts in archive. There are only fonts from mscorefonts project under EULA now. Also I've include the EULA to HOW-TO file in archive.

So the usage of this fonts on web server is absolutely legal now. ;)

It's quite strange to place this fonts to bug tracker, I think. Who shall look for the addon in bug tracker? :S

May be is it possible to place this archive to File Repository of LimeSurvey? :)

Hello,

I am not a font specialist, but Libertine Font are GPL and utf8. Can we use Linux Libertine for cyrillic and other langage ?

Or maybe Droid under apache licence

If i had some time, i test with this fonts .

Good ideam Shnoulle. There are quite a few complaints about font issues so if there is a font that works fine and has an appropriate license it would be good to use that one after having tested it.

it's OK with me too. :)

May be is it possible to create a category in File Repository for additional "tcpdf" fonts that users of LimeSurvey can use on their webservers legally (as fonts from utf8_cyr_msfonts.tar.gz under EULA, Libertine, Droid under GPL etc.)?

Maybe we can add a new section "various stuff" at the repository: www.limesurvey.org/en/remository-mainmenu-109?
