Fonts that work here?
« on: January 31, 2019, 08:00:03 pm »
I'm trying to add some script fonts to my ideas thread, but I can't seem to find any in the list provided here that are what I want.  I've looked some up, but they don't work on here.  I've seen some font's like that on other peoples threads, so I know some are accepted.  Is there a list of fonts that work here?

I don't know if it's the same for Elliquiy but most coding will allow you to choose anything as a font and if the other user has it installed, it'll show up. If not, it'll revert to something universal like Times New Roman. So the ones that should show up for most are:

List of Fonts
Arial
Arial Black
Arial Narrow
Book Antiqua
Calibri
Cambria
Candara
Century
Century Gothic
Comic Sans MS
Consolas
Constantia
Copperplate
Corbel
Courier New
Curlz MT
Cursive
Fantasy
Fixedsys
Franklin Gothic Medium
Gabriola
Garamond
Garton
Georgia
Impact
Lucida Console
Lucida Sans Unicode
Microsoft Sans Serif
Mistral
Monospace
Monotype Corsiva
OCR A STD
Optima
Palatino Linotype
Papyrus
Sylfaen
Symbol
System
Tahoma
Times New Roman
Trebuchet MS
Verdana
Vivaldi
Webdings
Wingdings
Wingdings 2
Wingdings 3

Edit: Looking at a link provided under the Help section I found this link? Hope it helps?!

Some that you are seeing may be graphics that people made in photoshop. I have a few text graphics myself and they aren't actually using fonts and instead using images with the script font.

If you would like one of those made for you, I can help you out with that! Just shoot me a PM :)

If you use a typeface that you have in your own font library on your computer, it will show up visible to you, as your computer can access it from its own library. Others who may not have that typeface in their library will not see the same thing; it will be replaced by whatever is determined the closest typeface to what you requested. For example: Absolute is a typeface that I have on my computer (it's a custom download so I'm pretty sure it's one few folks here have) so it displays like
this
for me, but odds are pretty good that you don't have it, so it should look different to you. Probably it looks like the default font (but bolded and bigger, because Absolute displays very small for me, so I needed to make it bigger so my screenshot would be readable).

The ones that work for Elliquiy as a whole for sure are the ones in the 'Font Face' option on the forum posting window.
