Report PDF Subset does not Work for Chinese Font (Doc ID 2285586.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When Chinese Characters are used in the pdf subset section, pdf subset won't work. Chinese characters in PDF output show as gibberish.
Example

[PDF:Subset]
細明體 = "mingliu.ttc,0"


However, when subsetting other English fonts to the same Chinese font will work perfectly (displaying Chinese correctly in PDF).

Example

[PDF:Subset]
Arial = "mingliu.ttc,0"
