Start using font

Stephen Barncard via use-livecode
The dictionary says that fonts can only be embedded on desktop apps but I
have a dim memory we could do it on mobile too. Has anyone done that?

RE: Start using font

Stephen Barncard via use-livecode
I have a folder "Fonts" that I include in the "copy files" pane of the
standalone settings. I put my fonts there. I don't think that the folder
name matters. The fonts are automatically available.

Thanks, I was hoping that was the case. So it's a dictionary error. Good.

Does that you don't have to "code/script" to access the fonts?

Just putting them there  (copy files)  makes them available?

RE: Start using font

Stephen Barncard via use-livecode
Yes.

There are some lingering font issues from the 1990's (unbelievable).
Sometimes a font families are combined sometime not. And sometimes the name
is slightly different. Here's a function to enumerate all fonts and their
styles.

function FontInfo
   local fnames,fstyles,tlist
   
   put the fontnames into fnames
   sort fnames
   repeat for each line tfnt in fnames
      put "*"&tfnt&cr after tlist
      put the fontstyles(tfnt,0) into  fstyles
      repeat for each line tsty in fstyles
         put space & tsty & cr after tlist
      end repeat
   end repeat
   delete char -1 in tlist
   return tlist
end FontInfo

Re: Start using font

In reply to this post by Stephen Barncard via use-livecode
I think I see where I got misguided. "Start using font" is for desktop.
The fontnames dictionary entry explains how to include fonts in the Copy
Files pane in standalone settings. So if the fonts are included in the
build, I don't need to "start using", they're available automatically.

Which makes me wonder why I'd ever need "start using" at all.

Re: Start using font

Personally, I’ve used it to make a font management tool for dealing with large font libraries. It’s not something ‘fit for prime time’ as it looks abysmal at the moment but it works. :)
