Issue/Introduction

When converting to PDF the Spanish Ö is not getting converted. In the database it looks fine and in test is working fine, but failed on production.

Cause

Bad font.
Cached version of the font being used.

Environment

CA View 14.0
CA Spool
CA Output Management Web Viewer 12.1

Resolution

Seeing the character stored in CA View is not an indication that it should transform correctly. In order to render that character correctly in the transformed result, it has to be defined correctly in the codepage to point to the correct bitmap of that character in the charset. 

A bad font was causing the error. Customer deleted the bad font, but still had the problem. 

There is likely a cached version of the previously used T1GI0395 font that is being used so that could be the reason you did not see a change.
