Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When generating postscript files from Oracle Reports 11g/12c 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.

The bullet character should be printed instead of hyphen on Unix.
