  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Output messages such as those produced with the Run Command test
    action can be truncated if the text contains international
    characters such as Japanese.
    The output is correct in Results Gallery but is incorrect when
    converted to PDF in a Results Publisher.
    
    For example, a Run Command output is:
    echo 日本語ABCD1111 ABCDabcdABCD2222 ABCDabcdABCD3333
    ABCDabcdABCD4444 ABCDabcdABCD5555 ABCDabcdABCD6666
    ABCDabcdABCD7777 ABCDabcdABCD8888 ABCDabcdABCD9999
    
    In the PDF report, it is:
    echo 日本語ABCD1111 ABCDabcdABCD2222 ABCDabcdABCD3333
    ABCDabcdABCD4444 ABCDabcdABCD5555
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Configure a Results Publishers in Project Settings to output
    to PDF file
    2. In a test suite, add custom report in "Publish Results" tab
    3. In the test, add an output such as Log or Run Command action
    that includes some Japanese
    4. Run the test suite and check the PDF report
