    I have a report that uses a custom font (ttf). The font is installed on the computer. 

    In Report Designer, the font is rendered correctly, however when I load the report (from a local file) into our wpf application (report viewer) the font is not displayed correctly, i.e. it shows a different font. 

    When exporting the report to PDF or Excel etc the report is once again correct. 

    We are not using report server - everything is generated locally. 

    Any hints on what might cause this?

    Hello Thomas,

    The used fonts must be installed on the machine where reports are processed and rendered.

    Other approach is to use Telerik Reporting R3 2016 or greater, where we introduced the Private Fonts feature.

    Let us know if you need further help.
