    Default Color not correct on PDF

    This is minor but annoying. I have a simple web-based eParking Citation program. On the printed citation (report) the word "PARKING VIOLATION NOTICE" is set for Bold, RED. If printed directly from Alpha to a local printer is comes out fine.

    When it is opened over the web via PDF, the same word shows up and prints in Bold, BLACK. Same thing happens with a "eWarning Citation" program I have.

    Yet if I stick a color photo on the citation (for testing), the photo comes out in full color. The problem only seems to be with text.

    Wondering if anyone else has had a similar situation?

    Rich,

    This doesn't answer your question, but it may solve the problem.

    Go to paint and create a graphic of the title in red. Save as .jpg and put in on your report.

    If it likes a picture, give it a picture!

    I think it will be font substitution on the server - just ensure you use a fon that is the same on the server and development. Font subtitution is hard to detect as the font looks the same by is actually something else.
