Chinese Characters Wrap Outside Right Margin When Using Simsun Font

(Doc ID 2153112.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Running a report with some Chinese characters included will wrap lines incorrectly. That is, some of the lines are overflowing outside the field boundary on right side. 

For Example:

Already attempted the following, but the problem persists:

[ PDF:Subset ]
SimSun="simsun.ttc,0"
"Arial Unicode MS" = "ARIALUNI.TTF"

 REPORTS_DEFAULT_DISPLAY=YES
 REPORTS_DEFAULT_PIXEL_SIZE=200

Other values attempted with no difference:
REPORTS_DEFAULT_PIXEL_SIZE=100
REPORTS_DEFAULT_PIXEL_SIZE=75
REPORTS_DEFAULT_PIXEL_SIZE=72
 

On Unix, when set "*DefaultResolution: 305dpi" in screenprinter.ppd, the output appears to be fine.  Sample entry in screenprinter.ppd file:

*DefaultResolution: 305

 However, this does not apply to Windows.
