change font of invoice report

I try to change the font of my invoice report. The RML header already got a new font, but not the report. The Font is already installed (Ubuntu server 12.04).

I tried changing the font via openerp report designer (just change the font in Open Office), but not working. I tried changing the font in addons/report_intrastat/report/invoice.rml... same result.

Where can I change the font?

I have exact the same issue. The new font is installed in ubuntu server and works for the header/footer as well.

But i dont know how to make it work inside the report.

When i get the PDF out of the invoice, it has included the new font (as it works in header/footer as expected). Did you find a solution to use own fonts inside a report? Maybe its somehow possible to declare a style in the RML Header, which we can use in OpenOffice Design Reporter?

The report designer should be "what you see is what you get". Are you sure you uploaded the new report and it over wrote the old report?

Try throwing some new text into the report you changed the font on like "THIS IS A TEST" and see if the change appears. This would confirm you are correctly using the report designer to upload the report.

yea i tried that a few times, with different font and on different VMs. Not working... But if i make a word Bold, this works. I dont understand this. Are you sure i dont have to edit a rml file?
