PDF export



we have hundreds of reports based on Crystal Reports 9. Now we are using our CR 2008 based own viewer. The viewer loads the old report files, mappes the connection, loads the new data and exports the report to PDF.

In CR 2008 Service Pack 3 the following question for reports based on CR 10 is answered:

Enable large fonts registry setting to maintain field positions in PDF export for
migrated reports
When Crystal Reports 10 reports are migrated to Crystal Reports 2008 and then exported to PDF, the layout of
the information may not be as expected. Some fields may not have the same relative positions as in a report
exported from Crystal Reports 10.
You may need to enable the "ForceLargeFonts" registry setting to get the proper output.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Crystal Reports\Export\pdf]
Set "ForceLargerFonts" = 1 to enable it.

Do we put the same apply to us?
