Hi Mina,

thank you for the Wiki update.

One more question:
While creating the font extension in jaspersoft studio you have to select the fonts(family) by source.
But the fonts direction is different on different OS. Does this matter if I choose the fonts from the OS source for the font extension?

I have putted the fonts to a folder in .../application_server/server/ROOT/reports/fonts and created the font extension from this source.
I have also copied this fonts folder to this direction on the production app server.

Do I have to do this?

Best regards

Hi Thomas,

No, it doesn't mater, jar file doesn't have any reference to your local fonts.

After you add fonts to jasperreport studio and export them as a jar file, font_extension.jar (or any other name you give it ) file is created, this font_extension.jar is the only file you need to copy in <servoy_install_path>/application_server/plugins/servoy_jasperreports folder in your application server. Therefore you don't need to copy fonts folder.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,
Mina
