Thread: Problem with accents in pdf format

    Default Problem with accents in pdf format


    I have some issue with french charaters when choosing pdf as report format.
    All letters with accents like é,è ... are discarded from the pdf view.

    It's ok with html/csv/xls/rtf format. The text I try to display is a static one (label) from the report designer.

    Any idea ?

    My pentaho version is the one from the 3.0.0 stable tar. It runs under red hat linux with sun java 1.5.0.

    Ok, found myself.

    I had to go to the "configuration" parameter for the report in report designer.
    Then, choosed the output-pageable-pdf parameters tab.
    I changed the default encondig "CPxxxx" by ISO-8859-1.

    Is there a way to do that globaly for all report done with the report designer ?

    err, you can do it in your platform globally by setting that parameter in not sure about changing the designer default.

    Exactly the same thing. There is one in the "resources" directory.

    Currently you should configure the ../WEB-INF/classes/ file instead of, you must add the line: org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.pageable.pdf.Encoding=ISO-8859-1
