I can't change the fonts. :(

Post by Luhpet »

Hello there people! I'm new to the Rainmeter, and I'm having a lot of fun with it too. The only problem is, I can't seem to change the fonts. I can only change the fonts to either Tahoma or Arial. :(

I want to change most of my fonts to this
And I the skin/s I want to change is the VertDate from BentSkin.

I really need help.

~Luhp.

[Edit] I also want to change some other skins with this font.

FontFace=Bleeding Cowboys

Works for me. Have you restarted Rainmeter since installing the font?

Hmm, it worked but, there's something wrong with it with the BentSkin. But, I think I'll just sttick with it.

Oh, I tried it with Arista 2.0, it says it can't create it when I restart Rainmeter. :(

open word, chose that font and copy/paste the name of the font from work in the skin
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

I don't get it. I open word, I open the font to word? If I do I get this weird boxes with jibberish stuff.

It didn't work for Arista. It worked for Bleeding Cowboys.
I also found a better font, It doesn't seem to work. Can you try it?
It's this one.
Mind if you try Arista 2.0 too? ^^;;

It is working Everyday Ghost it is the name of the font

Arista 2.0 it working too

try use them as Local Font
LocalFont
Allows a skin author to include fonts with the skin without forcing the end user to install the fonts in \Windows\Fonts.

LocalFont=[path]FilenameOfFont.ttf | .otf
LocalFont2=[path]FilenameOfFont.ttf | .otf
Continue for as many as needed

Example:
[Rainmeter]
LocalFont=#PROGRAMPATH#Fonts\TheSaBdCp.ttf

[MeterName]
Meter=STRING
FontFace=TheSansBold-Caps

Note that while it is suggested that the font reside in C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Fonts to reduce duplication of fonts on a user's system, the font can be in any folder and any valid Windows path can be used with LocalFont. Also be aware that the filename of a font is almost never the same as the fontface name used in the FontFace= statement. It is the skin author's repsonsibility to ensure the correct FontFace name is used.
