While I know nothing about Lazreport, giving some more details would be helpful.

What problem... No characters at all? Wrong characters?

What operating system/Lazarus version do you have?

Would you have a small example project that demonstrates the problem?

@Blestan: if a bug has not already been filed in the bugtracker, perhaps you could create a bug in the bugtracker with some details.

That'll help get the information where it needs to be (and if you have any specific suggestions/patches on how to fix it, they'd be welcome too in the issue page).

Ok! I know that ...

Well... depends on how you see it ;)

In any case, feature requests go in the bug tracker as well though, easier to keep everything in one place...

Edit: perhaps this bug covers this problem/feature request as well:
