Why can't I keep the fontfamily in the RichEditBox in Win8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I'm a brian lee who is store app user and developer.

    I have a issue that the RichEditBox doesn't keep the fontfamily which I set at the created time.

    So I tested it by using the simple tested code below.


    Below is my simple tested XAML code.

    1) Create basic Store app project.

    2) Add the RichEditBox in the main XAML page like below.

        <RichEditBox Height="500" Width="500" FontFamil="궁서체">

    3) Launch the App and type korean but the renderng font is not "궁서체"  which I set.

    4) Then, when I test with same app in Win8.1 RTM.

        When I type the korean in the RichEditBox, the redering font is "궁서체".


    I wonder regarding the issue that the RichEditBox can't keep the setted fontfamaily is solved in new

    Win8.1 environment or not.

    And if Win8 has this kind of problem, there will be plan to update in Win8 also?

  • Do you have this problem with other fonts? Do you have the "궁서체" font available on Windows 8?

    Without knowing the problem details I can't say for sure, but it is unlikely that the change here will roll back to Windows 8.
