Hello,

I hope someone can help me. Is it possible to add a new font family to Capture? Thanks!

I am not aware of having to add a font to Capture. If a font is installed on your computer, Capture should "see" it, just as any other Windows application does.

Perhaps we've not understood your question.

Thanks for replying.
Yes, the font is installed but Capture can't see it. I understand that programs inherit system fonts that's why I was wondering why the font that I want to use is not available in Capture.
Btw, I was trying to use an Open Type Font.

I vaguely recall that there is an issue with Open Type Fonts and I think it has to do with the .net runtime and thus is out of the control of MadCap. You best bet is to find that font as True Type Font, that should show up fine.

Thanks, I guess you're right about the .net issue. Downloaded a TTF and it works fine.

I just hope that there's a solution for this .net issue because it's hard to find a TTF counterpart for some fonts.
