PDF Problem

Hi,

We recently installed SP 19 for Visual Studio 2015 taking us up to v.13.0.19.2312. Exporting to PDF now has an issue with fonts. Notice how the letter t is now tt and we have overlapping characters.

We upgraded from v.13.0.16.1954 and the export was working properly. After upgrading the format changed. Running on Windows 2012 terminal server. I checked the date and version of crxf_pdf.dll January 21, 2017 version 13.0.19.2312.

The print preview looks fine, it's only to PDF that is having an issue. We originally found it on our production server but have since tested in Visual Studio on our DEV machine as well. Both machines were upgraded at the same time.

Has anyone else found this problem with this version?

Thanks,

Brian

    There is a registry setting that may work.

    In either of the following:

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0 - (on 64 bit OS)
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0

    go to or create ...\Crystal Reports\Export\PDF.

    Then create the key UseCustomEncoding with a value type of DWord and a value of 0

    • Hi Dell,

      The registry entry appears to be working. I tested it on our DEV and Test servers and so far the PDF are holding their formatting.

      Thanks,

    Font is Calibri?

    • Just did a search for Calibri and see it's a known issue.

      Well shoot. All of our reports use Calibri because it's the default font in Office. So, we're going to have to change 200+ reports?
