Symptoms

When generating postscript files from Oracle Reports 11g on Windows platform, letters with bullet points are included in the text. On the Linux platform, these characters print as a hyphen or dash. When running to a postscript file, the text in question can be copied and pasted into a text editor and it is displayed as a bullet.

When the file is generated as a PDF, the bullets are displayed properly.
 
Report is not printing as expected to Postscript format.
