@Baraa,
if you are talking about Arabic please follow my last comment, create a font folder inside moodledata, then download all tcpdf fonts here https://sourceforge.net/projects/tcpdf/files/. as the tcpdf is used to generate PDF. choose a font named ALAribiya which will support Arabic. there are many other fonts will be added as well

Hello Everyone,

I have tried to install the custom certificate on my totara solution but got error with database so I can't test the new element Date Range and Course Field.

I would like to get the course time or credit hours on the certificate , so it can be possible, if I add a course custom field as text input and it will pick up in the course field element in the custom certificate template as it does with user field
I can't test it myself.

I also look for moodle documentation of Custom Certificate but could not find information about new element.

Thanking you

Regards

Kumar

Hi Mark,
I found a problem in the printing of the certificate: if the student has a surname with the apostrophe, for example Steve D'onald, his name is printed on two lines and not on the same line.

Hi Stefano, please create an issue at https://github.com/mdjnelson/moodle-mod_customcert/issues with detailed replication steps (as well as what version of Moodle and Custom certificate you are using) as I could not replicate it.

Is there a way where we can preview the certificate once we add all desired fields

Hi Mark,
I have a problem with setting elements in drag and drop.
When I save the background data: posx = 0, posy = 0, but when I add text and set it in drag and drop, for the background the plugin sets the posy data with a minus.

This results in poor display after re-entry. The background is positioned above the drag and drop field.

Regards
