How to export a report or report element to PDF format
Export content appears, as shown in Figure 4-11.
When a report contains languages that are read from left to right, such as English or French, and those that are read from right to left, such as Hebrew or Arabic, the text from both languages can be presented in the same report in the appropriate direction. This text is called bidirectional (BIDI) text. Select BIDI processing if you have a report in two or more such languages and need the data to be correctly presented in the PDF or PostScript output.

Select Font substitution to substitute any fonts that the application cannot interpret. Font substitution is the process of using one font in place of another when the original font is not available. The classification of fonts into families enables the process of font substitution. For example, it ensures that only a sans serif font replaces another sans serif font.
Enter a value in Chart DPI, specifying the resolution at which to display the chart, if the report you are exporting contains one or more charts. A higher DPI results in a larger file size. If you do not specify a DPI, the chart engine exports the image with a DPI value of 192.
Select Render chart as vector graphics for existing charts in SVG format. This option for SVG images improves the resolution of the exported image, while maintaining a smaller file size.
Choose OK.
