Windows Store Apps

Post by JerryLive » Fri Nov 29, 2013 7:54 am

I have a Windows Symbol font which I created in FontCreator.
It has been used for a few years in Windows.
It currently works perfectly in my Windows 8.1 desktop app.

However, it does not work in my Windows Store app, and a standard text font is being substituted
I have been unable to find any issues at MSDN and there are no error messages or install issues.
The standard Microsoft "Symbol" font works OK.

Has anyone had this issue ?
Thanks...

With fonts so many things can go wrong. The description you provided does not ring a bell here, so more information is needed to better understand the issue. What version of FontCreator do you have? And what license do you own?

I own Version 5.
I do not have a license.

My programs are all free, so I have not had any issues until now.
I am happy to upgrade to the newest FontCreator if that would work.
I do not know about a license.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is a contradiction, but please we aware we own the software. When you buy a license you get the right to use the software according to the licensing terms.
