HTML5 component and fonts
« on: December 03, 2012, 02:22:28 AM »
Hi all,

I want to display an HTML page using the HTML component. The page is a
simple div with some text inside. I want the text to have a "non standard" font, in particular
the Myriad Pro. I tried with the @font-face tag but this made the player crash.
So I tried to install the font in the system (Windows 7) and use the css font-family : "Myrisad Pro Cond" property.
It works in every browser but not in the HTML component of the signage player.
I tried also with the "Myriad Web Pro" that is in the fonts list of the Signage Studio but it does not work as well.
It seems than only standard fonts (like Arial, Verdana, etc.) are displayed correctly.

Is there a way to solve this problem?

If the text is static then simply create your text in Photoshop or other on a transparent canvas and save it as a .png file type.  Then simply add the .png to your web page.

In version 4.0.100 fonts are not working as they should  :-[
When I select a font in the SignageStudio and looks Ok, it not always look fine in the SignagePlayer. Specially when using bold or italic
Player works changing fonts to Arial, Verdana, ...
Sometimes the same font works with some font sizes and doesn't with other sizes
