1555252 - How to fix Crystal Reports Java SDK to prevent bad formatting exported PDF with justified paragraphs that includes accented European characters?


  • Crystal Reports report with text objects containing accented European characters.
  • Report exported to PDF using Crystal Reports for Eclipse (CR4E) embedded designer or the Crystal Reports Java SDK.
  • Output format correct when viewing document in embedded designer or DHTML viewer.
  • Output format incorrect when exported to PDF - the accented characters have incorrect larger spacing, resulting in the line extending beyond the bounding box of the text object.


This issue has been addressed in Crystal Reports for Eclipse 2.0 Update 9.  Please update your runtime and CR4E embedded designer to Update 9 or higher.
