Why Is PDF Export Unable To Use Open Source Zapf Dingbats Font As A Replacement For Wingdings Font?

(Doc ID 2009652.1)

Last updated on MAY 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Outside In Technology - Version 8.4.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Attached is a file named WingdingsVsZapfDingbats.doc that shows both "alphabets" of the Wingdings and Zapf Dingbats fonts (WingdingsVsZapfDingbats.doc) - including upper and lower case characters - and the output generated by the presence of the Zapf Dingbats font (WingdingsVsZapfDingbats.pdf) on Linux environments.  Why is the output not showing the Wingdings characters correctly?
