Adding Font Example
Designer supports adding custom fonts to a DLEX through the top-level Document.
- Select anywhere outside the page or report (the grey area).
- In the Document Properties you can change the fontFamilies or openTypeFonts property.
Add a font by performing the following steps.
- Add the font to your desired location in your DynamicPDF Cloud API cloud storage.
- Select Edit... from the openTypeFonts property to open the Fonts Editor.
- Provide a name and the relative path to the font.
- Select the Add Font button to add the font, and then select Close.
The font can now be used anywhere within the document. For example, to use the font in a Label layout element, you would select
myFont (or the font name you provided for your custom font) from the font property list.
Upon creating the report, the label's text will be in the custom font.
