When the font is not embedded in the document, PdfViewer tries to read it from the OS. However, the Calibri-Font is not properly parsed and a NullReferenceException is thrown internally for its encoding.

The CID font may define a description of the glyph widths. By specification, the widths can be defined in two ways - with start and end CID codes or with and an array of CID codes. However, the current implementation supports only CID arrays as direct property and not as an indirect object. This leads to incorrectly imported glyph widths and text positioning issues.

I am using the PDFViewer control in a VisualStudio VB.NET application. The PDF is not showing all the details as it appears in Adobe PDF Reader. In particular, the text is not showing up (but is highlighted when selected) and there is gray shading that is not visible. See attached sample file. Please advise.

The offset of the CropBox is not respected and is always treated as 0.

Workaround: Import the document with PdfProcessing, change the CropBox offsets of the pages to 0, export the modified document and then import it in PdfViewer.

The EI keyword defines an operator for ending the image data. When the stream contains the same sequence, the parser treats that as an end of the image data. As a result, the image and the following content cannot be properly parsed and there is missing content when the document is visualized.

Currently, RadPdfViewer uses WPF DrawingContext class for drawing page elements to a Canvas.  When PDF page has many content elements (usually geometries) drawing the page may be time-consuming and freezes the UI. 

Instead, we should consider implementing another approach for rendering the content asynchronously which would improve the user experience.

Some files when opened with PdfViewer will throw a KeyNotFoundException which will be handled. Parts of the text in the file might or might not be missing.

When the file has an annotation with a destination and this destination is missing from the destinations (Dests) collection of the catalogue, KeyNotFoundException is thrown when you try to scroll to the page where the annotation is located. A better behavior would be for nothing to happen when trying to click on the annotation leading to the destination.

The hierarchical document structure is a means to describe the PDF document structure, which is currently not supported. See 10.6.1 Structure Hierarchy on 856 page of the PDF specification for details.
This document structure is an alternative to the standard PDF structure and most non-Adobe software does not support it.

The document might have been created with Adobe software like Adobe LiveCycle Designer. Very often the document contains some fallback text in the standard PDF structure like:
"Please wait... If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document."
"The document you are trying to load requires Adobe Reader 8 or higher. You may not have the Adobe Reader installed or your viewing environment may not be properly configured to use Adobe Reader. For information on how to install Adobe Reader and configure your viewing environment please see  http://www.adobe.com/go/pdf_forms_configure."
"For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat X, Reader X, or later."

When there is no ToUnicode CMap, the text from the Simple Font instance (TrueType or Type1 font) should be extracted by mapping the glyph name to its corresponding charcode according to Adobe Glyph List. Additionally, the Differences array should be included in these calculations when there is custom encoding. The current implementation of RadPdfViewer makes ToString to the original char id byte value which leads to wrong characters. 

More information about this may be seen in the second point of section "5.9.1Mapping Character Codes to Unicode Values" on page 470 in PdfReference 1.7.

The rendering of images with size ~5000/6000 and BitsPerComponent is time-consuming. The scenario is optimized in terms of memory but would be nice to increase the performance as well.

When Find Next is used multiple times fast, and pages are still loaded asynchronously, sometimes NullReferenceException is thrown with the following call stack:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Text.TextRecognizer.GetLastCharacter()
   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Text.TextRecognizer.IsLineBreak(Glyph glyph)
   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Text.TextRecognizer.ProcessGlyph(Glyph glyph)
   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Text.TextRecognizer.CreateTextPage(RadFixedPageInternal page)
   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Text.TextDocument.GetTextPage(Int32 index)

   at Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Search.TextSearch.Find(String text, TextSearchOptions options)

This is reproducible for images with FlateDecode and predictor value in the range between 10 and 15. As an example you may take a look at the DecodeParms property in the following image PDF dictionary:

<< /BitsPerComponent 8 /ColorSpace /DeviceRGB /DecodeParms << /BitsPerComponent 8 /Colors 3 /Columns 1024 /Predictor 15 >> /Filter /FlateDecode /Height 2868 /Subtype /Image /Type /XObject /Width 1024 /Length 1236707 >>

While the other annotations are drawn on top of the content, the highlight annotation is behind the text it highlights. In other words, it has to be inserted at a specific place in the ContentElementsUILayer. The pdf seems to mark the precise place where the highlight should be placed with the BDC, MCID and EMC operators in the content. At the moment, the read-only rendering of the highlight annotation has been implemented with an instance of the AnnotationUILayer called "HighlightUILayer" which is placed behind the ContentElementsUILayer. With this implementation, depending on the contents of the pdf, the highlight annotation might be visible or it might not be.
