Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately there is no front end way to upload a font in BI Publisher. Perhaps it existed in XML Publisher - what BI Publisher was before. I haven't used that product. I thought I had a solution to upload type1 (Postscript) fonts when I got Voluta Script working by using information in that blog I mentioned earlier. And the BI Publisher document doesn't have enough information. These type1 fonts have 2 files assoicated with them the .pfb and .pfm and BI Publisher document doesn't talk about them.
My problem got solved now. When my initial attempt didn't succeed for whatever reason, I tried using a value of "bold" for weight.
<font family="MetaPlusBold-Roman" style="normal" weight="bold">. This also didn't work.
Later the fix was to use as follows in the font declaration within xdo.config file:
<font family="MetaPlusBold-Roman" style="normal" weight="normal">
Now MetaPlusBold-Roman is working.
We have BI Publisher installed as a stand alone. The group was initially using Oracle Reports to generate reports
and now we are moving to using BI Publisher.
Glad that you have resolved the issue. I actually did the same thing you described when I was new to XML, but realized later that for uploading font, you can do via XML publisher Admin and XDO Config is not required.
