Barcode font is not displaying in the generated output when using a PDF form template.

The issue can be reproduced by putting the Albany WT J font into the %pshome%\jre\lib\fonts folder.

The Albany WT J font is being used as a fallback font when the required font is not found. When the required font isn't configured appropriately in the xdo.cfg file, the Albany WT J font under %pshome%\lib\fonts folder is used. If this fallback font can not be found either, the barcode font embedded in the form template itself will likely be used. This unpredictable behavior can be avoided by ensuring that required fonts are configured appropriately in the xdo.cfg file, using the <font-substitute> property.
