Dear colleagues using ArchivesSpace,

I am with Chinese University of Hong Kong Library, I am trying to use the “EAD-PDF” feature in the Archivesspace public interface. However, I realized that all the Chinese characters will appear as the “#” character in the generated PDF. 

This happened for both AS 1.2.0 and AS 1.4.2

Since the majority of our records are written in Chinese language, it becomes a big problem if the system-generated PDF cannot display the Chinese characters correctly.

If you have seen the same problem, I appreciate your sharing of any workaround. Thanks a lot!
