PDF Export on Linux

    I'm trying to export a PDF from a section report via a Linux based docker image and I'm running into this error. Is there a way to disable the FontLinks functionality so it doesn't need access to the registry?

    Hello,

    Currently, it is not supported to export SectionReport in PDF format in Linux. It is scheduled to support in the AR15.1. Could you please wait for the AR15.1 to use the ActiveReports in Linux environment.

    Thanks,

    Do you have a rough timeframe of when AR15.1 will be released?

    Hi,

    Can you please release a hotfix for this issue? (It may be even some unofficial hotfix shipped outside of the official channel).

    We are in the process of evaluating possibility to run AR on Linux and we need it to be fixed to move forward. Waiting 2 months is too much.

    Thank you.

    Hello ,

    unfortunately, we can't release this feature right now.
    even if the call to registry will be disabled and the fonts collection will be filled by the default fonts on the machine the PDF output in the most cases comes garbled.
    please wait for the service pack.

    Thanks,
    Sergey Romanov.

    Sergey,

    Is the release date of AR 15.1 already specified?

    Thank you.

    I'm also interested in an update on the release date? Is it still in the mid April timeframe?
