Dear Confluence support team,

 

I had added an excel file, where inlcudes Korean letters by drag and drop in a confluence page.

The contents Page itself display Korean letters correctly. However, the contents of  excel file contents is not displayed properly.  All Korean letters in the excel in the page are displayed as rectangle.

 

Original Excel file snapshot is as follows:

However, it is displayed like as follows:

Taking a look at this issue:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-36557

It seems like you may have to install the fonts in /usr/share/fonts.

잘 되었으면 좋겠어요...

Dear Stephen Deutsch,

Thanks for your hint.

My mistake was in setting of setenve.sh

confluence.document.conversion.fontpath="/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts"

It is modified as follows:

CATALINA_OPTS="-Dconfluence.document.conversion.fontpath=/opt/atlassian/confluence/jre/lib/fonts/fallback ${CATALINA_OPTS}"

Thanks again for your interest and help.
