I have some externally-created PDF files that have, for whatever reasons, "Character Spacing" values of differing (and sometimes negative, as in the attached example) "character spacing" values as revealed by Adobe Acrobat Professional. That is, each character has a different "character spacing" value.
Does anyone know how to programmatically (in CF) "normalized" these values? The effect is that, when printed, the spacing between characters is erroneous. Can iText be used to accomplish this?
