A question for the gurus out there, If your CGM contains non-english characters, how does XPP render them? Apart from adding non-english fonts, what else do you have to set? Thank you.
PS: what does CGM stand for?
CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) is a type of image.
The JT setting you've referenced is not relevant to this question about "non-English fonts in a CGM image".
I thought it somewhere a familiar sound...
Not sure specifically about the "non-English characters" question, but in general XPP handles CGM images by using a third-party (SDI) program to convert CGM images to EPS images for display/output.
There are some other "details". If the CGM image is a non-binary type of CGM, then another SDI program is used to first convert to the binary type of CGM. And if Direct to PDF (divpdf) is being used for output, then the converted EPS file is converted to a PDF (with Ghostscript) before being included in the PDF output.
As far as "fonts" are concerned, any fonts being "used" in the CGM image (including those that would have the non-English characters) and thus being referenced in the converted EPS image file would need to be available/installed in XPP (i.e. under the XYV_EXECS/psres folder via Font Copy utility).

So forget about my previous reply.It is totally irrelevant to the question being asked.
And to add to Jonathan's note, once the non-English fonts are installed in XPP they would be to be setup and referenced on output via the enable font download, -efd, switch if using psfmtdrv for postscript or postscript to PDF output.
Thanks everyone for the replies. SDL Support provided a patch. I can see CJK in my CGM graphics now.
This is resolved thanks to SDL Support.
