Last updated on MARCH 13, 2018

Applies to:

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


Multi-Byte Arabic characters are wrapped and moved to next line for Reports generated on 12c environments. This issue is observed for reports generated on Unix platforms.

Likewise 11gR2 reports, 12c takes advantage of REPORTS_ENHANCED_FONTHANDLING parameter and issue occurs when this parameter is set as REPORTS_ENHANCED_FONTHANDLING=YES.

Issue occurs to both In-process and StandAlone report servers.

This behaviour is observed on reports generated as PDF with subsetting, HTML, HTMLCSS, and RTF. This issue is not displayed when using DESFORMAT as DELMITED, SPREADSHEET, ENHANCEDSPREADSHEET. 


 Install 12c in Unix platform.

 Enable PDF subsetting feature.
