Title: New Fonts
Post by: doohit on October 06, 2014, 05:58:49 AM

I know there has been some previous posts on that subject, but no real answers given by MS.

We are faced with a problem : 80% of the fonts included in MS are known only by...MS tech I suppose...

The usual, worldwide, well known fonts like Helvetica or Times, or any other usual everyday fonts are just not there...!

On the orther hand we have Babe Bamboo, Astron Boy Video or Nauvoo, which nobody has heard of, and no way to add new fonts...

We are all interested in what MS has to offer us on that subject.

Please, tell us something is on the way and coming very soon !

Best Regards

Is there a way to get a full list of all of the fonts that are currently loaded into the system???

I would also myself like to add some fonts. Can I send you ttf or otf???

Hello, new user to the application here.
Trying to add fonts for usage, am I understanding that the only way to add fonts is to submit them to MediaSignage and THEY add them in an update?
So then everyone has to get them? Or do they only get added to my account?
Seems inefficient.

Would it be possible to import the Google Fonts free collection into the platform? This is an easy library that can be viewed and is used very commonly and does not look trashy like a lot of the bogus fonts in the current database. Theres only two to three fonts that are even usable in most environments from a graphic design point of view.

I have a font I'd like to add to the system. I'd like to use it throughout all of my scenes if possible.  I have attached it here

Can this be added to the system?

I can send a link to the file (via Google Drive)

Thank you,

The Panton family would be great! Providing you with this font is something I obviously can't do if you make this available to every user.

If there is a way I can add fonts to my own account (and remove all the junk ones) there is no issue about copyright at all.

But as it seems you make fonts become available to all users you need to take care of the copyright. The Panton family you can find here;  fonts[dot]com/font/fontfabric-type-foundry/panton/complete-family
