Crystal Reports XI - Export to PDF Font Issue

[ Edited ]

 

I just ran into an extremely annoying little bug in Crystal and wanted to warn you all.

 

DO NOT use Calibri or any of the new Windows fonts when writing your reports.  The Crystal XI PDF converter does not interpret the font correctly and it adds all sorts of characters to your text.  Ts, for example, are replaced with tti.

 

I spent about 30 minutes reading through forums and the only solution I found is to change the font back to Arial or one of the old standards.

I did not find a complete list of problematic fonts, so it's probably best to stick with fonts you know will work like Arial.

 

I hope you are all spared this experience = )

Thanks Nathan, for this.  Just to confirm we found that this is a problem just within the Crystal PDF conversion logic.  We use PDF printers instead of the Crystal Export routine and these different fonts are handled correctly.
