I am wanting to use symbol glyphs from a variety of TTF fonts , but in an iOS app.
I can get them (more or less…) in desktop, and include them in a PDF using MBS plugins and ‘embed’ instructions.
The iOS examples which come with Xojo have 2 font samples
One lists available fonts
One purports to have a variety of fonts in labels, but so far it only seems to work for me with the very specific couple of fonts in the example.
If I try to use any of the ‘dings’ style fonts, I dont get symbols, it just shows letters as a fallback.
I need to bundle some TTF fonts and make them available to my iOS app.
Does anyone know how to do that?
(SF Symbols might do if I can embed them in a PDF as a vector glyph)
Oddly, I don’t see any examples of 'how to use these user fonts on PDF’
other than ‘set a property and your fonts should be embedded’
baby steps … lets get the font showing up.
I have only used DynaPDFMBS so far… maybe in this instance I might benefit from using Xojo’s implementation, but I have a lot of Dyna format code I just want to port, while changing as little as possible.
