PDF: DBMemo exported as image?

edited September 2013 in Devices

we have a report that contains several DBMemos. When we export that
report to PDF one of the DBMemos is rendered as an image into the
resulting PDF file.

I do not see anything that is special for that memo. The only difference
is that this memo may contain text in foreign laguages and therefor it
may contain accents (e.g. for french text) and other non-ascii
characters (but: the export ist done with unicode enanbled!)

There are no fonts embedded (if that is important).

The export is done with RBuilder 14.08 and Delphi 2010

Under which circumstances is a DBMemo exported as an imgage?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Ralf,

    A DBMemo should never be exported as an image using the built-in PDF
    device. Are you certain this is a DBMemo and not a DBRichText?

    If you would like you can send an example of this I can run on my
    machine and I'll take a look at it for you. Send the example to
    support@digital-metaphors.com in .zip format.

    Best Regards,
