Can I include Font Size in an HTML Catalogue?

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Tue Mar 15, 2016 9:41 am

I tried using {FONT_FILE_SIZE} in an HTML font catalogue template file, but it's not supported.

The Help File says that it can be used for Font Export.
These variables can be used in several places where variables are supported, including preview text and font export.
I obviously misunderstood something.

It looks like we actually forget to add them. I've added them to the bug list, and expect it will be fixed with the next upcoming release.

Also note
{FONT_VERSION_STRING} should be {FONT_VERSION}
{FONT_TYPE_SHORT} is obsolete
{FONT_STATUS} is not working
{FONT_UNIQUE_FONT_IDENTIFIER} is not working
{FONT_NUM_GLYPHS} should be {FONT_GLYPHS}
{FONT_NUM_CHARS} should be {FONT_CHARS}

Thank you. That was quick — as usual.

I already added an embedding flag to my catalogue, I though it important to include a font's file size too, if anyone is thinking of embedding it on a web site.
