Change Font Name

Post by voyager » Tue Jul 24, 2018 12:38 pm

Hi,

I would like to create a new font so I exported the font with the new name but when I try to install it, I see the old title. How can I change the old title even the file name has already been changed.

Thank you

The file name is not the font name, to change the font name you have to change the name of the font in the font properties.

Exactly what Paul said:

The font name is stored inside the font, so changing the file name won't work. To change the font name, go to Font Properties dialog. From there select the Identification tab, which allows you to change the font name. Then export the font.
