Installed Fonts not found in Inkscape 0.92.3

Postby Clero » Mon Oct 15, 2018 6:34 pm

Hello together ... I have a problem:
.
to create a logo, I installed the font Forgotten Futurist in Windows 10 (Pro/64bit). This works fine in Win10 by simply double clicking on the .ttf file, in my case "forgotten_futurist_rg.ttf". The font will then install itself automatically.

The font is then displayed in the Windows font settings: http://prntscr.com/l66v6y


The above mentioned font is now available in all applications ... except in Inkscape (version 0.92.3) ^^

I have also tried to clear the font cache from Windows 10 several times - following instructions like this: https://www.it-administrator.de/themen/ ... 66729.html

Unfortunately nothing works ... what am I doing wrong here? It would be great if someone could give me a tip! :)

Hallo Zusammen ... ich habe da ein Problem:

um ein Logo zu kreieren, habe ich die Schriftart Forgotten Futurist in Windows 10 (Pro/64bit) nachinstalliert. Das funktioniert in Win10 ja wunderbar, indem man einfach einen Doppelklick auf die .ttf-Datei, in meinem Fall "forgotten_futurist_rg.ttf" macht. Die Schriftart installiert sich dann automatisch.

Die Schriftart wird dann in den Windows Schriftarteneinstellungen angezeigt: http://prntscr.com/l66v6y


Die oben genannte Schriftart steht mir nun in allen Anwendungen zur Verfügung ... außer in Inkscape (Version 0.92.3) ^^

Ich habe auch schon mehrfach versucht den Font-Cache von Windows 10 zu löschen - nach Anleitungen wie dieser hier: https://www.it-administrator.de/themen/ ... 66729.html

Leider klappt nichts ... was mache ich hier falsch? Es wäre großartig, wenn mir jemand einen Tipp geben könnte! :)

Inkscape needs to be closed when you install new fonts. Well, it doesn't have to be closed, but the font won't show up until you close and re-open Inkscape.

If you've already closed and re-opened Inkscape by now, and you still have the same problem - If that's a free font, could you share a download link, so we can test?

Some fonts are not well formed, and Inkscape does not use them as a result. It could be the case here...

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

Works in win 8.1 64bit, so could be Inkscape version or Win version.

Is this Win10-S?
Was Inkscape downloaded/installed from the Inkscape.org website, or the Win AppStore?
