Goal

Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) uses Helvetica as default font for PDF printing.
It may cause problems when the report uses non-alphabet characters. For example, if the report includes Japanese characters, these are displayed as "#".

This document describes how to change the font in PDF, to prevent the above case.
