Workflow: ‘Embedding’ fonts

Using this tutorial as the basic workflow, this are the steps to get embedded fonts.

  • Create a stylesheet.css, and input the following:
    @font-face{
    font-family:"square";
    src: url('square.ttf') format ('truetype')
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
    }
  • The src attribute refers to square.ttf, which is the TTF that must be avaiable.
  • Import via C2 the CSS and TTF so that it is registered in the C2 /Files folder
  • Create a ‘dummy’ Text object instance, then set the webfont and stylesheet parameters.
  • Ask System to wait 0.1 seconds.
  • Then Destory the Text object instance. This guarantees initialisation of the Text object with this font.
