I am converting DOCX to PDF with following code:

        Dim converter As New Syncfusion.DocToPDFConverter.DocToPDFConverter

        converter.Settings.PdfConformanceLevel = Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfConformanceLevel.Pdf_A1B
        Dim pdfDocument As Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument = New Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument(Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfConformanceLevel.Pdf_A1B)
        pdfDocument = converter.ConvertToPDF(documentToMerge)

        'Saves the PDF file 
        Dim outStr As System.IO.MemoryStream = New System.IO.MemoryStream()

The original document stream "documentToMerge" is made of only "Arial Unicode MS" fonts, the output PDF file is showing english text OK. But all Gujarati unicode characters are misarranged. (Probably words split at erratic characters, or adding spaces between characters, or skipping some characters).
Submitting herewith original docx and output PDF for comparison. Please have a look at gujarati text in output file.
