Font Subsetting is Not Working in PDF Output when Font Name Includes Unicode Characters and 'NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.UTF8' (Doc ID 416348.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2016

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 10.1.2.0.2 to 10.1.2.3 [Release Oracle10g to 10gr2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Symptoms

When a report is executed to generate PDF output using Font Subsetting, the fonts are not subsetted in the PDF output when "NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.UTF8" is set.

However, when the same report is executed with "NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.ZHS16GBK"setting, the PDF output is perfect. That is, the fonts are subsetted in the PDF output.
