Yes i tried the same example in my application it is same for RTF. One more thing,,, The arabic Numbers should be printed as Arabic not latin. for example...

العدد 7 downward arrow is actually 7 in arabic, i m facing this problem while printing PDF report, although Numbers in JRXML file are in correct Arabic format, but when it come to generate PDF it change them to Latin Characters/Numbers.

I don't think I understand what the problem is with numbers. If you have numbers in the Arabic text, it should show as numbers.

Anyway, our tests indicate that the same RTF file looks OK on some machines and not good on others. So it might be related to the RTF viewer application that you are using.


You should try attach some screen shots describing the problem you have.


I hope this helps.
