thanks, the fonts are working now that I put in the full path to the jre/libs/fonts folder. rtfm.

However the footer is still problematic. With this source code:

footer.setAreaHeight( 50 );
footer.setHtmlTemplate(“Footer test
” + “${page} of ${total}” );

What happens is the htmltemplate does skip the first 2 pages but the area height does not.

I want to fill up the entire page with a graphic in the first 2 pages and then only from pages 3 onwards must the footer area height be set. Is this possible?

Either that or can I create a separate footer for the first 2 pages which I will fill up with a graphic?
