UTF8 Text in JSON Data

  • Hello! Great product!

    I am using the cloud service via the API. I have some special characters in my JSON, for example:

    { "data": { "name": "Divinityᴴᴰᴾ® Mist 24in x 24in" } }

    But it does not render correctly in the PDF.

    If I try to set Content-Encoding: utf8 I get an error.

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you!

  • That's a problem of the client handling or chrome missing some fonts for pdf rendering.
    If you render with html recipe? Does this work?

    Here you can see there are no issues with postman for example

  • Rendering with the html recipe works fine. How do I get it to work with chrome-pdf? It doesn't seem to matter which font I use. The font does change in the PDF correctly, but the encoding is wrong.

  • Fixed!

    For anyone lurking, adding this line to the top of the template fixes it:

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
