  • Hello,

    What version of Visual Studio are you using?

    CR requires True Type fonts and they also must be a Unicode font. Try using MS Ariel Unicode as your font and see if it maps to that font and Cr can display it. If you paste some text into a static text object does that work?

    Other option is in for example Oracle has a Language configuration setting where it will translate the language of the data from the DB so it will be displayed properly through the DB Client. Not sure if what ever DB you are using will support this functionality, or if Oracle supports it also or has the ability to use Malayalam font.

    Thank you
