Oracle Forms Reports 12c Greek Font

Hi,

When we print a report to PDF from Oracle Reports 12c it does not show Greek Characters.

When using web.show_document (.../reports/rwservlet/getjobid....) with destype=SCREEN and desformat=PDF

We have made changes to uifont.ali for [ PDF:Subset ].

We also noticed if we make changes to uifont.ali there doesn't seem to be any changes to the report.

We are using Fusion Middleware Control 12c, WLS_REPORTS Version 12.2.1.4.0 On Windows Server 2016

We have EL8MSWIN1253 Database and UTF8 Database and the problem is in both.

If you need any more info please let me know.


Thanks,

Steven.

    Hi,

    You have

    "Arial".....           = "courbi.ttf"

    you should replace that with

    "Arial".....           = "arial.ttf"

    Also at the end of the file add:

    *="arial.ttf"

    Then copy the uifont.ali file to C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home\tools\common

    Restart WLS_REPORTS and the reports server and try again.

    Regards,

    Dan
