Hi Martin, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We can achieve your requirement of “Add font awesome characters to a table cell” using the font file “fontawesome-webfont.ttf”. Please refer the below code snippet for more details, 

//Create a new PDF document 
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument(); 
//Add a page 
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add(); 
//Create font 
FileStream fontFileStream = new FileStream("fontawesome-webfont.ttf", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read); 
PdfFont font = new PdfTrueTypeFont(fontFileStream, 14); 
//Create a PdfGrid 
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid(); 
//Create a DataTable 
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable(); 
//Add columns to the DataTable 
dataTable.Columns.Add("Font Name"); 
dataTable.Columns.Add("Awesome Character"); 
//Add rows to the DataTable 
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "fontawesome-webfont", "\uf02d" }); 
//Assign data source 
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable; 
//Add cell style 
PdfGridCellStyle cellStyle = new PdfGridCellStyle(); 
cellStyle.Font = font; 
pdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].Style = cellStyle; 
//Draw grid to the page of PDF document 
pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10)); 
//Save the document 
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(); 

Please find the .ttf file downloaded link from below, 

Please try the above code snippet in your end and let us know the result.
