This is reproducible with specific PDF files which use custom Encoding for the fonts of the field widgets. 

WORKAROUND: Change the font of VariableContentWidgets before editing the field value. You should additionally call RecalculateContent() method of these widgets if the value of their corresponding fields is not edited. The following method may be used for changing the font of all existing widgets in the document:

private static void FixEncodingIssues(RadFixedDocument document)
    foreach(Annotation annotation in document.Annotations)
        VariableContentWidget widget = annotation as VariableContentWidget;

        if(widget != null)
            widget.TextProperties.Font = FontsRepository.Helvetica;

When a TrueType font is defined, the mapping of character codes to glyph indices depends on the built-in cmap table mappings defined in the font and the Encoding property defined in the PDF dictionary.

However, the current implementation maps all characters with cmap tables for Microsoft Symbolic and Macintosh Roman, which causes incorrect mapping results, e.g. space characters are mapped to an Ê glyph.

The issue is also described in the following public item: TryGetCharCode for OpenTypeFont uses wrong cmap and returns wrong charcode.

Workaround: Change the font  of the TextBoxField's widget appearance:
foreach (var widget in field.Widgets)
    widget.TextProperties.Font = FontsRepository.Helvetica;

By the PDF format specification, CIDToGIDMap is optional. The default value is Identity. However when exporting CID Font with missing CIDToGIDMap property the analyzing tool causes the following warning message:

"PDF/A requires that a Type 2 CIDFont has a stream mapping from CIDs to glyph indices or the name Identity as its value."

Release LIB 2019.2.624 (06/24/2019)

When there is long text that is out of the used cell range area, this text should be included in page splitting calculations.

Also, when a cell has text that overflows its width, the text is again clipped by the cell boundaries and is not visible in the exported PDF. In a similar case Excel exports the surrounding cells to ensure that the content is visible.

Workaround: Extend the used cell range to include all the cells which the text content spans.

By specification, the document AcroForm contains fields with no parents. However, some documents may have child fields in the AcroForm. This leads to ArgumentException when importing the child and parent fields - 'An item with the same key has already been added.' since the child field is added twice.

When creating a GradientStop, an alpha channel of the color could be applied. However, this setting is not respected it the result document and the gradient is with full opacity.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a gradient with an alpha channel:

RadFixedDocument document = new RadFixedDocument();
RadFixedPage page = document.Pages.AddPage();
FixedContentEditor containerEditor = new FixedContentEditor(page);

LinearGradient linearGradient = new LinearGradient(new Point(0, 0), new Point(30, 30));
linearGradient.GradientStops.Add(new GradientStop(new RgbColor(10, 0, 207, 0), 0));
linearGradient.GradientStops.Add(new GradientStop(new RgbColor(10, 0, 102, 204), 1));

containerEditor.GraphicProperties.FillColor = linearGradient;
containerEditor.DrawRectangle(new Rect(10, 10, 48, 29));

2. Export the document to PDF

Observed: The alpha channel is not respected and the gradient is with full opacity
