Shubham Kumar

Hi All,

 

Could anyone will help me to upload new fonts in QlikView, so that I can use those font in QV document. I have  already installed those  font in the machine but not coming in QlikView.

    Shubham - I'm assuming that you added new fonts under Control Panel and Fonts folder, is this right? Are you adding .OTF or .TTF? Have you tried to check if these fonts exist in other applications like WordPad or Microsoft Word? Also, please can you provide the specific font name?

     

    Thanks,

    DV

      The problem here is that even if you upload fonts to your server, my understanding is that they will not be displayed to the users unless the special fonts are loaded onto each machine as well.  Not sure if this is practical in your environment.

        Hi Couron,

         

        Thanks for your reply. If all the user will be looking at the same server QV report then they must be seeing the  same font, which I have applied. So  my question is how  to set new fonts in QlikView font tab. I searched all the possibility. I didn't find any font tab under  QV. Need help.

         

        Best,

        Shubham

      Hi DV,

       

      Thanks for your  reply.  I have copied and pasted in server font and I am able to  see those font  in other  application like MS-Word etc. Would  I be able to get those font  even in QV. FYI..the font  name is MyriadPro-Bold_1, georgia_4, and so many others which is not available in  QV right  now.

       

      Thanks,

      Shubham

        Shubham – My understanding is that the fonts are rendered by local operating system. I understand that you have loaded fonts on the Server but I really doubt if it can pick up the font. Because, Access Point communicates with Web Server like any other website. So if you don’t have the font locally installed then I don’t think you can view it on your browser. Again, I’m might be wrong but this is my gut feeling. Probably, other experts can add more value to this thread. I’ll keep my eyes open on this thread.

         

        Sorry, I can’t solve this one for you. Good luck!

          Thanks again for your very  polite  reply.  As of now my QlikView  is installed on server and right now my aim to show the report to the only in server with the help of the current  branding font. Anyways even I will  keep  eye on  this post any expert might provide me the solution.

           

          Thanks,

            You are welcome mate. If it's just branding font, I mean if its something like a logo then you can probably use design software like Illustrator, FireWorks, PhotoShop or simply MsPaint and you can save it as image and use the image instead of using the font. But I'm sure you must have thought about this tweak, but I thought its worth mentioning - Just in case!
