The link mentions you will have to install the fonts, you may have to reinstall the fonts in your case.

If your AP users open documents in the IE Plugin, then your fonts will work out of the box if properly installed in Windows (which you seem to confirm because the company fonts do appear in MS Office documents)

If your AP users open documents using the Ajax client, you need to tell the AJAX code that it should use webfonts (called X, Y and Z or something, but otherwise nothing special about that) and that they are available locally ("local" specifier in css) i.e. no need to download them from the QV web server.

Best,

Peter

Of course you need to tell your objects where they should use a specific font.

The Properties->Font->Font overview lists all fonts that are installed locally in your Windows Fonts directory. For example, this is the list I get after double-clicking Roboto-Regular.ttf (a Google WebFont) and selecting "Install":

Does an MS Office app list the company fonts on your laptop? Did you restart QV Desktop after installing your company fonts?
