Hello all,

Somebody here know how to change the font type in a PDF report?

I'm on Odoo v8.



I had the same problem but managed it with report.style


  1. Install the truetype font under /usr/share/fonts & restart server

  2. Goto website and choose html editor

  3. Choose style from dropdown and add your font under body

  4. body {

    color: #000 !important;

    word-wrap: break-word;

    font-family: Open Sans;


  5. Save it and generate the qweb report.

Look at this one, it works for me today. It's the only CSS I need for the moment. 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<t t-name="account.report_invoice_document">
    <t t-call="report.external_layout">
        <div style="font-family: Ubuntu;" class="page">
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col-xs-5 col-xs-offset-7">
                     <h4><strong>Invoicing address : </strong></h4>
                           <div style="margin-left: 20px;">
                                     <address t-field="o.partner_id" t-field-options="{&quot;widget&quot;: &quot;contact&quot;, &quot;fields&quot;: [&quot;address&quot;, &quot;name&quot;], &quot;no_marker&quot;: true}"/>
                                     <span t-field="o.partner_id.vat"/>



See PDF with the margin-left and Ubuntu font.

Pascal, I'm strugling with the same problem. Managed to change the font type of the HTML but as soon as you turn them back into PDF font is back to basic. 

If I find solution, I will come back here to write it.

Style should be defined inline. File containing custom CSS is not found during PDF conversion.
