On a related question, I now have another problem with saving notebook to PDF.

OS: Windows 7 SP1 English Ultimate
MMA: 11.3 X64

The Chinese characters displays fine in the notebook, but when exporting (save as PDF, this is what happened.

What can I do?? I can't print to PDF as stated in previous post.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm unable to reproduce your issue on Mac, v11.3, so my assumption is it's Windows-only $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Jul 5 '18 at 21:39

I am on MMA 11.2 Win7-64. In order to reproduce the problem, I copied a few sentences from the Wikipedia page for MMA in Chinese (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfram_Mathematica), then pasted them into MMA and changed the cell to text.

Trying to save as PDF from there produced the garbage you saw.

However, I found the problem to be the font that is used to render the characters in the Notebook. This is what worked for me:

  • Select the cell containing the text
  • From the menu, Format -> Font -> Arial, Regular
  • Save as -> PDF

This then seems to work fine:
