MICR and BARCODE Font Setup in Oracle XML Publisher

1. Log in as XML Publisher Administrator.

2. Navigate to Administration->Font Files->Create Font File.

3. Fields are Font Name and File. For Font Name choose any descriptive name. File will browse your PC to locate the font file.

4. Navigate to Font Mappings->Create Font Mapping Set.

5. Mapping name is the name you will give to a set of fonts.

6. Mapping code is the internal name you will give to this set.

7. Type: 'PDF Form' for PDF templates. 'FO to PDF' for all other template types.

8. Create Font Mapping (this allows you to add multiple fonts to a set).

9. Font Family is the exact same name you see in Word under Fonts. If you don't use the same name the font will not be picked up at runtime.

10. Style and weight must also match how you use the font in Windows. Normal and Normal are good defaults. Normal, Normal

11. DO NOT enter Language or Territory

12. Choose a value for Font Type. Truetype

13. Search for the Font you just created in step 3.

14. Navigate to Configuration -> FO Processing -> Font Mapping Set. Can also be done at data def and template level under Edit Configuration. Hierarchy is Site-> Data Def -> Template.

15. Select your new mapping set.

16. Make sure the font is not referenced under File->Properties->Custom in the RTF template file.

17. Select a temporary directory on your concurrent processing node (Configuration -> General). This needs to be a private area not shared by other processes, read writeable by the applmgr (owner of the $APPL_TOP file system). It should be fairly large 5 GB or 20x larger than any datafile being used. The fonts will be downloaded here the first time they are used.

18. Also at this site level select your font mapping set.

19. Upload a template that uses your special font and test using preview.
