Getting Special character '�' while reading PDF file

Post by praneet » Thu Jan 24, 2019 12:30 pm

While reading PDF through Ranorex 8.3.0, last character is replaced by special character- '�'.
Sample Text is captured as below
EQUIPMENT COVERAG�

How to handle this special character?

Hi,

At first, please update Ranorex with most recent 8.3.2. It makes no sense trying to debug a problem with an outdated version. At next, could you please upload the problematic PDF and describe in more details, what exactly are you trying to do with the file (what actions/code is used)? Thanks.
