PDF Preview from Publisher Desktop 12c Is Different from Publisher Desktop (Doc ID 2488943.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 12.2 to 12.2 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When you preview a PDF output on "Oracle BI Publisher Desktop" which is certified with Oracle E-Business Suite release 12.2 and 12.1 (**1), some PDF previews are different from ones created by "BI Publisher Desktop".

If you upload the RTF template to EBS 12.1/12.2 and preview it on EBS Server, you can preview it as you expect.

For example:

 - Some characters in PDF are very slightly placed down (a few pixels) than expected location although almost all characters maintain their location.
 - If some arrows are used in a RTF template, their locations has been changed and the direction of the arrow also have been changed.
