Symptoms

LSH  2.4.3

When running a LSH job to generate Oracle Reports PDF Output, it uses symbol font (like garbage characters), instead of English ones, and then, the PDF output from the Oracle LSH job does not matches with the Source table data. The source table data has the data available in English characters whereas the report output has non-English characters.

Acrobat Reader provides a command to display the Fonts used in a PDF document via File Menu -> Properties, as described in:
