Hi all,

I ran into a strange issue with Inline Settings and I'm not sure what's going on exactly. I could use a helping hand if possible.
I've included a link to the fonts used in the code.

The code below works as intendend.

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
DynamicWindowSize=1
AccurateText=1
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=0,0,0,255

;https://github.com/erikflowers/weather-icons/tree/master/font
;weathericons-regular-webfont.ttf

[MeterTooltipText]
Group=TooltipGroup
Meter=String
FontFace=Segoe UI
FontColor=255,255,255
FontSize=9
Padding=4,0,16,16
AntiAlias=1
X=2
Y=2
Text=[\xf051] Sunrise Icon [\xf052] Sunset Icon
InlineSetting=Face | Weather Icons
InlinePattern=[\xf051]|[\xf052]
InlineSetting2=Color | 255,117,0
InlinePattern2=[\xf051]|[\xf052]
InlineSetting3=Size | 14
InlinePattern3=[\xf051]|[\xf052]
However this one using Awesome Fonts shows a square instead. I'm kinda lost here ...

Thank you.
I think you are using a wrong font name. For me simply FontAwesome works. This font tool will help you find the right name (and view all the glyphs at once) https://us.fontviewer.de/

Thank you Active Colors and jsmorley for pointing out my mistake.

Yes indeed, I was using the name as shown by the Windows Font Viewer.

Fonts are complicated... What I look for is first "Preferred Family", and if that isn't there, then "Family".
