Well, it looks like fontconfig is installed in on-rev, but neither /home//.fonts or /home//.local/share/fonts are being updated automatically. I tried to run fc-cache -f -v /home//.fonts and the font is indeed found, but I don't think I have all the required support directories, so there is no

"start using font file.." is the first option that I tried, but unfortunately it returns "can't load font file"... The ttf file is on the server next to my script, and I have also tried with the full absolute path for that ttf file. Could you please make a test on your own on-rev account with any

My apologies.. Had a brain fritz, it should be "start using font file.." load url would just load whatever url into cache and not font it up. On Tue, Mar 6, 2018 at 1:07 AM, jbv via use-livecode < use-livecode@lists.runrev.com> wrote: > When using > load font file "nameofyourfont.ttf" > the
