One more thing to note

ORACLE_HOME/guicommon/tk/admin/PPD directory

screenprinter.ppd has default as *DefaultFont: Courier
and if you change to any other font, all your reports in pdf format will have that font by default.

The best way is to log a TAR with oracle support, with this font issue. In case you have access to metalink( oracle support) you may search knowledge base
