Arabic Language Support for Dynamic PDF Merger Java

DynamicPDF Merger for Java (v8) Forum

We are using the PDF merger feature v8.x where we have a template and dynamic values are mapped using Dynamic PDF Merger Code in Java.
We are able to map the English Text but have issues with mapping the Arabic text.
The issue is that after the mapped PDF is generated, the Arabic letters appear but the data is garbage. Once we click on the text, the actual Arabic text appears.

Can you advise what could be the issue here.

Code used to map the value to the field:
 document.getForm().getFields().getFormField("docKey").setValue("محمد سهيل);

Hello,

Arabic language characters require character shaping and support for character shaping is not available in v8. Please refer to the following documentation link.

Hello,

Arabic text support is not yet available with the Java version of DynamicPDF, though it is available with the .NET and COM/ActiveX v10 versions. We have this feature on our to do list and will likely include it a future version. Please note however, that we don’t have an exact time frame on this.
