Comparing with MS Ming font, MS P Ming font will miss the character position when font cannot recognize the character under Crystal Report for Visual Studio.
Crystal Reports for Visual Studio
Reproducing the Issue
Please download the sample project from attachments and deploy it into your visual studio environment.
This is a by design behavior for Crystal Reports for Visual Studio(.NET GDI+).
This issue is caused by the difference between fixed font and proportional font.
Take the content of “住所2” as example
When drawing in .net GDI+, only four characters can be recognized and drawn.
1. When drawing with MS Mincho font, this font is a fixed font, meaning each character takes up the same amount of space, so even the unrecognized characters cannot be drawn, the space for them are kept.
2. When drawing with MS PMincho font, this font is a proportional font, meaning each character takes up only as much width as it needs, as the unrecognized characters cannot be drawn, their space will not be kept.
