Simple Text Asset
Fonts used by the Simple Text Asset are stored within the experience's project file structure. As a result, there is no need to pre-install fonts used by the Simple Text Asset on targeted Player devices. This applies to all Player platforms: Windows, iPad, Android, Chrome OS, Samsung SSP, LG webOS.
The only exception are fonts whose license forbids "embeddability". In this particular case, you would need to pre-install the font manually on each Player device.
Verfiying whether a font is embeddable
As noted above, only embeddable fonts can be installed by Intuiface. Any font whose Font embeddability property is set to "Restricted license" will have to be pre-installed on each Player device by the font owner.
To determine whether a particular font is embeddable, follow either of the two procedures below:
- If you have direct access to the .ttf or .otf font file, right-click the file then select Properties in the pop-up menu. In the Properties panel, select Details and have a look at the value of the Font embeddability property. The value should be "Installable" or "Editable".
- If the font is installed on your PC, click on the Windows menu icon, type "Control Panel" and select Fonts. Find the appropriate font family and double-click it. Then right-click the specific font you're interested in and select Properties in the pop-up menu. In the Properties panel, select Details and have a look at the value of the Font embeddability property. The value should be "Installable" or "Editable".
Rich Text Asset
Fonts used in the Rich Text Asset are not stored in an Intuiface project - they are not embeddable - and thus must be preinstalled on every device running Player in order for them to be accessible to your project.
