I have however one additional question about TrueType fonts:


There are several TTF fonts installed on Windows (like Arial, etc.). When I use one of these fonts with the fontName attribute, I see the correct font in JRViewer, but not in PDF.


To use such already installed TrueType font for PDF, I have to:

- find the .ttf file in C:WindowsFonts

- copy the .ttf file to the classpath (or iReportfonts)

- specify the pdfFontName (the filename) in styled text



<style fontName="Freestyle Script" pdfFontName="FREESCPT.TTF">Test</style>


Couldn't this be made easier? Jasper should find the correct TTF file for embedding in PDF by only specifying the fontName attribute.
