Print Company Logo *.bmp using RDA

Greetings

Although the official word from JDE is to use a 3rd
party solution, I believe I have seen a thread here
that shows how to use specilized fonts to print a
company logo.
I can't recall the exact way to do it but it involves
defining a new font type and then using it in RDA.
If anyone has done this before, please share your know
how.
Thanks

hi

well, the issue has changed a little. i've created a
new font , installed on windows and used it in Rda
just fine. I can see the logo in RDA,
However, the *pdf will not display the logo and the
printer will not print the logo.
How do I install the new font to acrobat, printer and
ent. server?

thanks

You have not put your system config in signature - it may make difference.

You are probably using Acrobat Reader 4. This product has a sorry "euro
enabling" feature - it always uses it's own (type 1) fonts, instead of fonts
installed in windows. You can check what fonts are used in menu File -
Document Info - Fonts. If it does not say true type - it's type 1.

I had a limited (very limited actually, but you can always try) degree of
success after deleting all type 1 fonts in Resources folder in Acrobat.
Acrobat Reader 3 is using windows fonts. I have not checked out 5th version
yet.

If Acrobat is showing the logo right, it'll print in most cases. If it does
not - you'd have to print in graphic mode (slow and worse quality). Try
using PostScript driver if your printer supports it, instead of PCL -
Acrobat appears to interact with PS printers more gracefully.

As far as I know it is not possible to print custom fonts directly to
printer, using built-in JDEdwards filters (not that I put much effort into
testing).

Also, in the first cum after SP 15.0 (SP 15.1 or SP 15.2) JDEdwards is
planning to introduce some font handing enhancement (for us, unlucky
Cyrillic users), it may change the whole thing around again.

DB/400 (mostly SQL); Wintel, HP, AS/400 (mostly Wintel)
 
We have been successful in getting OneWorld to print our company logo on
our reports in XE. B7332 will not support custom fonts and XE will only
support custom fonts using PostScript printing.

In order to set them up, use the Bar Code Support Application on the
Prints menu. Our font is a TTF and we have installed it on our NT
Application server where all our reports are set to run and print. Hope
this helps.
