2077148 - UPE: no output of text with uploaded True Type Font


You print a spool request with the UPE (Unicode Printing Enhancement) method described in SAP Note #1812076 - "Unicode Printing Enhancement (UPE)". On the output, the characters which should be printed over an uploaded True type font (e.g. OCR font or Calibri, Celeste, etc.) are missing, and only space is printed where the text should be.

In the developer trace file of the spool workprocess you see an error message like:

S  *** ERROR => Errmsg=checksum error at TTF table post [rspoupe.c    1182]

The problem can occure also on other TTF tables like "hmtx", or "cmap" not only on table "post".
