Convection: Legality of using this Microsoft policy in printing

Post by Pyanepsion » Sat Jun 06, 2020 8:22 am

Hello,

Microsoft® Store offers for Windows 10 the free Convection font designed for XBox. I cannot determine whether we have the right to use it in a print publication.

Thank you for your explanations

Have you checked the license terms in Font Properties, Legal?

Yes and no, hence the question.

I couldn’t find information in the jungle of Microsoft sites about Xbox specific fonts also available on Window (I found it in Microsoft® Store).
– In general, the fonts offered with Windows 10 can be used on our machines, and if we have a non-limited version (family, student, personal), we can publish books using them.
– The Convection font is intended for Xbox, and can be used on our computer at least for personal use. I couldn’t figure out if it could be published in a book.
