Problem to include fonts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I am created WinCE 6.0 R3 x86 image, to Advantech AMD GeodeLX: x86 BSP.

    I added All Ariel fonts (Black,Bold,Bold Italic,Italic), Comic Sans MS, Courier New,Trebuchet MS and some other.

    When I am trying to use it in WordPad, I can see them, the fonts did not transfer to the image.

    I did this in WinCE 5.0 and all was O.K.

    Why this happened?

  • There are several steps in between adding fonts and using WordPad, are we to assume that you did them?  Steps like rebuild the OS, put the OS on the device...

    Assuming that you did rebuild the OS, that is do a clean sysgen, check your ce.bib to find out if the fonts are listed, if not check ceconfig.h to see if the fonts are listed, then open a build window and check to see if the SYSGEN settings are listed when you run "set SYSGEN"

  • Hi David,

    I also had a font problem with WinCE 6.00, and it take me a long time to find out why!

    On Windows CE there a two type of fonts, raster and True Type fonts. But only one type of font can be included in a Design.

    So check if you have include "Raster fonts support" into your design and remove it if so and then all must be working.

    See for more details.
