Hi,

I am not able to add some new text or labels in my header and footer.
I just want to add some text above header's picture and add new text in footer area.
But when I try to drop label or text I am not able to do that.
Also when I try to add new row or column in grids which are on header and footer I am also not able to do that (because I would like to add that new text in grid cell)

Why is that protected and how to change that? I am sending my example

Thanks for help

I believe this is because your master page is actually in a library.
You can create a new master page (from outline view) and see if that one
is editable.

Jason thanks for reply but I am having some problems.

Yes that master page is in library, which also has data source which I am using so I wouldn't like to remove my complete library.

I created new master page from Outline view with look I wanted I put some text, but when I generate report it displays me only the first modified master page which is in that library and which I can not add text in footer or header.

How to solve this?Maybe to somehow duplicate library and use only my new created master page? This is my new example as you can see I am having two master pages.. I tried deleting default master page but it anyway shows it

I will appreciate help,Thanks

Take a look at the report items on the canvas. Select them and then
look at the page break properties. Verify that you set the master page
to the new master page you created.

What items on the canvas should I select? Should I select all of them? I found "page break " option and currently it is set to None. I tried selecting something but it makes me two pages one "default" master page and second new master page but blank.
Thanks

The example report you posted looks like it has a top level table that
contains everything in the report. If you set its master page to the
new one it should work. You should not have to set any other.

Thanks Jason. Again you solved it!!!
If you have time I will be thankful to take a look at this my problem I am having some difficulties when exporting to PDF http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/351229/ maybe I must do some settings for localization letters problem because they are presented differently. You can see them in above report you have downloaded earlier.

Thank You,

I am not exactly sure how Maximo runs reports and also how the
fontsConfig file is configured.

Ok Jason thanks.

But do you know are there any settings within the BIRT for exporting to PDF? some export to PDF options or something like that?
Also is it possible to change encoding somewhere in BIRT? Maybe that is causing the problem...maybe I can try to change encoding...

Thanks

Do you mean within the report itself? I do not know of any setting in
the report that would cause this issue. This looks like a fonts config
issue to me.

Yes I mean within the report itself or some global setting for encoding, or exporting to PDF.

Whatever font I use it always exports me in this hardly readable font look.

I found out that solution is to modify fontsConfig file.

But do I have to modify fontsConfig or fontsConfig_pdf file?

Is it enough to I change that file only on my local computer not and on the server? Because BIRT I have only on my local machine and I import report on server...
Can you give me some inputs how to modify it?I mean what do I have to change... On Linux system does I have to have installed some font family?


I found some solution if you have minut to look at it. Thanos Kyritsis gives explanantion for Cyrilic and also for Greek Letters.


I did as he said:
This is my new fontConfig_pdf file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<font>
<font-aliases>
<mapping name="serif" font-family="Times New Roman" />
<mapping name="sans-serif" font-family="Arial" />
<mapping name="monospace" font-family="Courier" />
</font-aliases>
<font-encodings>
<encoding font-family="Times New Roman" encoding="Cp1252" />
<encoding font-family="Arial" encoding="Cp1252" />
<encoding font-family="Courier" encoding="Cp1252" />
<encoding font-family="Zapfdingbats" encoding="Cp1252" />
<encoding font-family="Symbol" encoding="Cp1252" />
<encoding font-family="STSong-Light" encoding="UniGB-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="STSongStd-Light" encoding="UniGB-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="MHei-Medium" encoding="UniCNS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="MSung-Light" encoding="UniCNS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="MSungStd-Light" encoding="UniCNS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="HeiseiMin-W3" encoding="UniJIS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="HeiseiKakuGo-W5" encoding="UniJIS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="KozMinPro-Regular" encoding="UniJIS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="HYGoThic-Medium" encoding="UniKS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="HYSMyeongJo-Medium" encoding="UniKS-UCS2-H" />
<encoding font-family="HYSMyeongJoStd" encoding="UniKS-UCS2-H" />
</font-encodings>
<composite-font name="all-fonts">
<font font-family="Times-Roman" catalog="Western" />
<!-- <font font-family="MSung-Light" catalog="Chinese" />
<font font-family="HeiseiKakuGo-W5" catalog="Japanese" />
<font font-family="HYGoThic-Medium" catalog="Korean" />
-->
</composite-font>
</font>



What is the mistake then?
Thank you

sorry I forgot link above https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=362057


Also I found solution that for Central European letters I need to change encoding from Cp1252" to encoding="Cp1250" on link http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21370210 but big question is when it will take effect?
I change that, created new report but still when exporting to PDF it is not displayed correctly. Is it enough to just change that XML file on my local machine? When I import that new file on server, modifications in fontsConfig file will take effect?Or do I have to do something more? Thanks

The fonts config file should be changed on both the designer and the
deployed environment.
