Hello,

I would like to generate a PDF report on Linux. I have experienced
problems with the handling of non-Latin-1 characters, some of the
accented characters available in Latin-2 are missing from the
resulting PDF document. I tried to change the fonts in the Reporter
Settings dialog but it does not help.

Any idea how to solve the problem?

Best regards,
Peter

The extension uses the excellent iText library to generate PDF
documents. As I see, the character encoding is fixed to "WINANSI"
in class com.rapidminer.report.PdfReportStream, that is a major
limitation.

Best regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,
do you have an Enterprise Edition? Then please send a ticket over the usual ticket system. Otherwise please post a feature request to out bugtracker. It's a really unnecessary restriction as I think the report in general is able to handle encodings. It seems to me, this code lines have been forgotten since a non standard way of defining encoding is used here by iText.

Greetings,
 Sebastian
