update: even when I import a jar file genereated by the iReport it does not work. I think this is a bug with the Jasper Studio.
update: attached is my jar file.
I am trying to install a new font in Jasper Studio (Arrial Narow) so that I can eventually print the report as a PDF docuemtn. Here are my steps:
Project Properties ->Fonts --> Configure Workspace settings ->Add->
- True Type : C:\tmp\ARIALN.TTF
- PDF Font Name : Left empty as none of the choices has arial narrow
- Embed this font in PDF doc : checked.
- Everything else is default
Then applied my new font to a lable on my report and I keep getting this error:
I was able to use the font inside the jar file you attached.
Haidar could you please open bug on the tracker? http://community.jaspersoft.com/bug-tracker?field_bug_project_target_id=496
Please remember to attach if possible the JRXML and also the version information about the JSS you are using.
Thanks in advance.
when you generate a PDF file does the font show in Arial Narrow ?
Also , are you using 5.5 Jaspersoft Studio Professional ?
There was a bug in 5.5.0 release with external fonts. Try using the most recent version 5.6.0.
Thank you so much for answering this, where can I download 5.6.0 from? On the download page for the professional version there is only 5.5.0. Any idea?
I have exporters to pdf, xls, and xlsx. I had this issue with pdf under 5.5.0 and the upgrade to 5.6.0 fixed the issue with the pdf font extensions. However, I am now having a simliar problem getting the font extensions to work using xlsx. It worked fine with 5.5.0 but is now broken with 5.6.0. Both versions export the fonts to xls correctly. Has anyone else reported this?
any idea from the Jasper staff?
