Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version to [Release 10gr2 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Any font added in a PDF Subsetting section in uifont.ali does not get included in the PDF output as subsetted

Expect the specific font(s) be included in the PDF and client machines that do not have it can seen it in the PDF output

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Edit the uifont.ali adding at the end something like the follow
[ PDF:Subset ]
"Interleaved 2 of 5" = "i.ttf"
"lbttf128L2" = "lbttf128l2.ttf"
"3 of 9 Barcode" = "3OF9_NEW.TTF"

2. Bounce the Reports Server
3. Run a report using desformat=PDF
4. Open the PDF to find out the barcode was Not included as Subsetted


 Added a new section of PDF Subsetting to the uifont.ali found under the oracle instance
