Hi

The font named "Arial Unicode MS" is not shown in the font list combo. Is there any way to add certain font in WEBI or it automatically comes from OS installed font?

Please give me any advice regarding that issue

Arif

Hi,

To add a font in the web intelligence interface, you just have to change the fontalias.xml in the "\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\win32_x86\fonts" directory.

Here are the steps which should help you out:

These settings would only work when the data is in the Unicode Format in the Database.

Open the Universe, test the connections, go to details and get the path of the SBO file.

Edit the SBO file, and under the defaults, add the following parameter : <Parameter Name= u201CUnicodeu201D>UTF8</Parameter>

In the win32_x86 folder in BusinessObjects\dataAccess\ConnectionServer : edit the cs.cfg.

Add the same parameter under the <DriverDefaults > if it does not exist.

Make sure ArialUnicodeMS font is installed on the serveru2019s windows font folder from Control Panel.

If it is not present then add it.

Now, go to BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\win32_x86\fonts folder, edit the fontalias.xml

Before the <FONT NAME=u201Ddefaultu201D> Add the following code in the file:

<FONT NAME="Arial Unicode MS">

<FONTFAMILY PLATFORM="ttf" NAME="Arial Unicode MS">

<FONTATTRIBUTE BOLD="false" ITALIC="false" LOGICAL="Arial Unicode MS" PHYSICAL="ARIALUNI.TTF"/>

</FONTFAMILY>

<FONTFAMILY PLATFORM="win" NAME="Arial Unicode MS"/>

<FONTFAMILY PLATFORM="java" NAME=" 'Arial Unicode MS', 'Arial Unicode MS'"/>

<FONTFAMILY PLATFORM="html" NAME=" 'Arial Unicode MS', 'Arial Unicode MS'"/>

</FONT>

=============================================================================

Now Save the file.

Now go to BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\win32_x86\scripts edit the i18n.xml

Under <TTF> add the following code:

<font name="Arial Unicode MS">

<os type="all">

<Attributs style="0" filename="ARIALUNI.ttf" encoding="" aliaspsname="Arial Unicode MS"/>

</os>

</font>

Save the file.

Open the Universe, and in the Universe Parameters Parameters make UNICODE_STRINGS=YES

The ArialUnicodeMS font should be present in the Windows fonts folder on the server as well as in the client side.

Go to Windows Regional language settings, in the Languages tab, the Supplemental Language Support

u201CInstall files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai)u201D and

u201CInstall files for East-Asian languagesu201D should be installed for all clients and server.

These all settings should be done on all the servers if the environment is clustered.
