My .Woff font doesn't appear to be a valid font when I install it

Postby SeanJSP55 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 2:54 pm

Hi, I am new to the product and I have created my first .Woff font.
It is in color, and it is the Nautical Alphabetical Flags.
I am wondering why I am getting this error message when I export it, and drag into my Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts

Here is the error message: http://i.imgur.com/S0pp6kI.png
Here is what it looks like when I view the font in FontCreator: http://i.imgur.com/nTbrjch.png

Is there a step I am missing before I export? Maybe from looking at my set-up in that 2nd picture, you guys can tell me if something looks off?

Thanks

A WOFF file contains a font in the Web Open Font Format, and can be used within a web site. Visitors of the web site will then see the font as a web browser will use it to display fonts.

If you want to use your fonts in Windows, then you need to save and use as TrueType/OpenType.

Thank you for that bit of information, I didn't realize that it was incompatible with use offline.
Good to know that is not an issue.

However, I am having trouble getting it to work on my website.
Is there anything specific to .woff fonts for use on web sites that I should need to know? Or can they generally be used for web in the same manner as a .ttf font is?

Thanks

The Web Open Font Format is widely supported in all modern web browsers.

This StyleSheet should get you started:

Code: Select all

@font-face {
  font-family: "MyWebFont";
  src: url("/webfonts/MyWebFont.woff") format("woff");
}

body {
  font: 32pt/32pt WebFont;
}
