those of you pulling hair out over getting your barcodes into your bursting outputs under EBS - stop pulling, you're ot going crazy. You're going to have to go old school to get them showing up - the bursting engine will not check the Font Manager for fonts - its an bug or enhancement depending on how you look at it - we'll get it sorted either. In the mean time you can still get those barcodes or other fonts into hte output.
Two methods are available:
1. RTF Properties - I have covered these previously, you create a custom property in the RTF.
Name: xdo-font.<<font family name>>.normal.normal
Value: truetype.font <<directory+name>>
Its quick, the oly problem being the template might not be very portable unless the font directory is mounted across instances.
2. Config File - thats covered somewhere too. A file, xdo.cfg is put into the JRE_TOP/lib directory. Needs the following to map the font location to a name in the template.
<config version="1.0.0" xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/oxp/config/">
<!-- Font setting -->
<font family="3 of 9 Barcode" style="normal" weight="normal">
<truetype path="C:\WINNT\fonts\3of9.ttf" />
Need to bounce those servers to take effect. Good Luck!
