1.This is the scenario i created a customized report with paper layout in Reports Builder and i set all fonts as "Arial",
then i deployed my report to Oracle Application (v12.2.4) and set the output format as TEXT.
After i run my report the font was changed to "courier new"

so the question is how can i display the same font?

When you set it as text does that output it to a TEXT file?
Textfiles have no formatting so it would default to a text font which generally is Courier New.

You need to export the fonts and the report locations in the Httpd.conf file.

Also need to put the customization things so that the fonts and the reports do not get overwirte when you run autoconfig things. May be you can take help from the local DBA. He can help you with the soultion.
