local font in rainmeter section

Post by TRSyntax »

hi.

the ini file:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
LocalFont=#LocalFont#

[Variables]
@Include=#SKINSPATH#SDX.Rainmeter\!SDX.BASE\ConfVariables.inc
the inc file:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
FontFace="Consolas"
LocalFont=#SKINSPATH#SDX.Rainmeter\!SDX.BASE\Consola.tff
will this work?? or do i have to include the full path to the font file in each ini? i can't tell since i've got the font installed in my local fonts folder and pretty much every skin and program on my computer uses it :\

sorry if its a stupid question.. its late in norway and i can't find the answer in the introduction..

med vennelig hilsen Tom Ryan (:)

Well there's really no point in asking if something will work. You have nothing to lose by trying it. Once you do, you'll have your answer.

The other programs wouldn't crash, LocalFonts has nothing to do with other programs. What it's for is specifying a font that is in a folder besides the regular Windows Fonts folder. That way you can include a font with a skin and the person who downloads it will not need to install it. The font in that folder is only going to be handled by Rainmeter. If it doesn't work, the worst-case scenario is that it defaults to Arial.

Test it with another font, if that's your concern.
