    set annot contents to utf-8

    Techi Panda Level 2

      Hi experts I am trying to add Annot in the pdf. This code works fine. My problem is i want to add unicode characters in the contents. While I am trying with unicode the characters goes to junk or something. How do i set the character set of the annot in to UTF-8 format.

       

       

      var annot = this.addAnnot

      ({

      page: 0,

      type: "Text",

      author: "A. C. Robat",

      point: [300,400],

      strokeColor: color.yellow,

      contents: "Need a little help with this paragraph.",

      noteIcon: "Help"

      });

       

      Thanks in adveance

          Acrobat annotations and the JS scripting engine are Unicode-aware and use UTF-8 as the default encoding scheme - you can simply type/paste your UTF-8 text into the console, but if you're writing a JS script file you need to save it with UTF-8 encoding instead of ANSI.

           

          There's no explicit method to change the encoding.
