Define Font Mappings

You can map base fonts in RTF or PDF templates to the target fonts to be used in the published document. Font mapping is performed only for PDF PowerPoint output.

There're two types of font mappings:

  • RTF Templates - for mapping fonts from RTF templates and XSL-FO templates to PDF and PowerPoint output fonts

  • PDF Templates - for mapping fonts from PDF templates to different PDF output fonts.

Make Fonts Available to Publisher

Publisher provides a set of Type1 fonts and a set of TrueType fonts.

You can select any of the predefined fonts as a target font with no additional setup required.

The predefined fonts are located in <oracle_home>/oracle_common/internal/ fonts. If you want to map to another font, then you must place the font in this directory to make it available to Publisher at runtime. If the environment is clustered, then you must place the font on every server.

Set Font Mapping at the Site Level or Report Level

A font mapping can be defined at the site level or the report level.

Use the following settings to set the font mapping:

  • To set a mapping at the site level, select the Font Mappings link from the Admin page.

  • To set a mapping at the report level, select the Configuration link for the report, then select the Font Mappings tab. These settings apply to the selected report only.

The report-level settings take precedence over the site-level settings.

Create a Font Mapping

From the Admin page, under Runtime Configuration, select Font Mappings.

To create a Font Mapping:

  1. Under RTF Templates or PDF Templates, select Add Font Mapping.
  2. Enter the following on the Add Font Mapping page:
    • Base Font - enter the font family that is mapped to a new font. Example: Arial

    • Select the Style: Normal or Italic (Not applicable to PDF Template font mappings)

    • Select the Weight: Normal or Bold (Not applicable to PDF Template font mappings)

    • Select the Target Font Type: Type 1 or TrueType

    • Enter the Target Font

      If you selected TrueType, then you can enter a specific numbered font in the collection. Enter the TrueType Collection (TTC) Number of the desired font.

      For a list of the predefined fonts, see Publisher's Predefined Fonts.

Publisher's Predefined Fonts

These Type1 fonts are built-in to Adobe Acrobat and Publisher provides a mapping for these fonts by default. You can select any of these fonts as a target font with no additional setup required.

The Type1 fonts are listed in the following table:
