Using a Custom Font


How does one go about using a font with a Xojo app (that has not been installed on a customer’s machine)? Does the font need to be installed / registered on the system first? …Or, can you just include the font (in the same directory) as the app and Xojo will automatically find it?

Thank you,


Is this the good answer ?

This is an old post. It contains several methods that work fine for Mac.

No solution there for Windows, though.

I still stand by what I wrote then. The best solution by far is to use MBS plugins. It works for both Mac and Windows. Plus Christian provides outstanding service.

@Byron Minick : Unless you need that for both platforms, it is a good idea to post in platforms/macOS or Windows, to obtain immediately a relevant reply.

I’ve posted an example Xojo project (for Windows, macOS and Linux) in this Forum-Thread some time ago. No plugins required.
