Using Fonts that are not installed

Post by Kutusow » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:51 pm


Is there a way to use fonts, that are not installed on my System, but are acutally available in the Editor itself?
ZapfDingbats would be such a case.
When i try to create fonts using the CreateNewFont() and CreateNewFont2() methods of the PXC_Document class, I either get an exception or the font get substituted by some alternative.

thank you,

Hello Kutusow,

Sadly, there is no possibility to get that fonts via the SDK.
