[jira] [Commented] (FOR-1232) Forrest might want to consider making Dejavu the default font for PDF generation

[ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-1232?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13195782#comment-13195782 ]

Karl Wright commented on FOR-1232:
----------------------------------

It turns out that although Dejavu makes great fanfare about it containing CJK characters, it actually does not at this time. So this is not a useful exercise right now.

> Forrest's configuration for PDF generation seems to use default fonts that do not have CJK characters. The Forrest site describes using the open-source Dejavu font family as a way of generating such multilingual PDFs. Since the Dejavu license has been ruled by Apache Legal as being compatible with the Apache License, it seems like a natural step to generate PDFs in Forrest using the Dejavu font by default, saving CJK users a significant amount of work in order to use Forrest.
