Are you running report as a concurrent process in Applications? If so, forget about custom fonts, it runs as character-mode report. Trying to use proportional fonts, like Arial, would make it look stupid, at least. There is a trick in Applications though, you can define PostScript printer and use printer definition file to use any font you like. By the way, Arial is usually absent on UNIX machines, use Helvetica.
