    From the menu bar: File - Configuration. Then in the Edit Report Configuration window, click output-pageable-pdf, check encoding (right side of the window) and write ISO-8859-1 instead of Cp1252.
    This worked for me in PRD 3.8.0-GA.
    Bye

    Hi,

    Thanks for your solution. I'm under PRD 3.6 and the problem can be resolved by setting in the file classic-engine.properties (located in WEB-INF/classes) "org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.pageable.pdf.Encoding" = ISO-8859-1. Another way to do the same thing, but for all furure reports.

    Hi..
    I want to show special characters and using ISO-8859-1, but at the same time I am not able to show multi-lingual data in the report.
    I want both UTF-8 and
    ISO-8859-1 in pdf rendering. Is it possible any way.?

    Have you tried this tip from another thread?

    [SOLVED]

    I made these changes:

    substitute these lines

    org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.table.html.Encoding=UTF-8
    org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.pageable.pdf.Encoding=UTF-8

    with these

    org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.table.html.Encoding=ISO-8859-1
    org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.pageable.pdf.Encoding=ISO-8859-1

    in this file:

    /tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/classes/classic-engine.properties
