Is it possible for a BOARD cloud customer to use their own custom font (.OTF file) that is not included as a standard Windows font? If yes, how would this be installed onto their cloud environment?
there is no need to install a custom font on a BOARD server
Fonts are only client-dependant. If you install the font on your client, and the other users have the same font on their client, the display of the font will work fine - installing it on the server won't make any difference.
Hope this helps,
Hi Phil Marshall
While this may result in the desired font in some circumstances, I've noticed that in many cases due to browser differences the font may not be as specified.
In the initial phases of a project (while confirming the critical look and feel elements of a solution) I've asked for an alternative font that may be more reliable across browsers to try and standardise the online experience.
So far, all have been able to understand the impact of browser differences, and can specify an alternative without issue.
Can I just ask you to clarify this for me? The font will need to me installed on the machine on which Capsule development takes place, then all users that are to consume the content on an HTML5 browser will need the same font installed on their computer? Thanks.
Correct - any client using or editing the capsule will need the font
Thanks, but what about consumers who don't have the client, they are just using a browser, how does the font get displayed? It I think it would be unreasonable to install fonts on every pc that is expected to access content on a browser, you may not even know which PC's to install it on, there could be thousands!
