PNote: Is there a way to use a font installed on the thumb drive?

Hello,

I started using Pnotes portable and I love it...
In fact, most of my colleagues want to have it on their desktop too Smile

There is only one issue. Since I cannot add font to my work machine as I do not have Admin rights, I was wondering if there is a way to add a font on my thumb drive that could be used by Pnote.
It would allow me to use the great Manu Järvinen font (http://pnotes.sourceforge.net/index.php?page=2) , which is very suitable for PNotes, where ever I plug my usb key Smile

Thanks in advance.
Ludo

yes, the link seems dead. Is this only for use in Pnotes or can it be used for other programs??

look here

it uses the ram, so I just put one or two missing fonts into the fonts directory and autostart it with the menu(R34-> but you can use any autostart function with the official PAM 1.1,too).It´s a portable font viewer for windows apps..
Could be on the wish list for pnotes 5.x, though?
Perhaps J.Bentley could make it available again..

don´t know if this is worth a real challenge..

but it´s very helpful. So, you could contact John Bentley and I could post/send to you the source code of his app.Btw, other code is already posted in one of the linked posts above..

Yes, thanks, I've read the linked posts. Actually this should be just calls to AddFontResourceEx and RemoveFontResourceEx respectively. Will try it within the next few days.

Just letting you know, the *Ex functions only work under Win2k+. If you care about Win9x compatibility (I don't, but some people still do), you'll have to use AddFontResource and RemoveFontResource. I don't think the *Ex versions add any functionality that would be needed in this situation anyway...

The main advantage of *Ex in this case - fonts added can be marked as private. As for 95/98 - the program's support starts from 2K, so who cares? Smile

This would be perfect as it

This would be perfect as it would also allow me to use my linux fonts at work with OpenOffice!

Would you agree to email me the .exe if you still have it?

I'm gonna put together a small app to do the portable font thing (system wide). Just haven't got around to testing it yet. I'll release probably next week.

Thank goodness for the Win32 API being flexible enough to allow us to do this! Everyone likes to complain about how complicated the Win32 API is, but you can pretty much do anything you want with it if you know what you're doing. Smile

Well, I've added today custom fonts functionality to PNotes and it works pretty good.
So, wait for next release Smile
P.S.
May be somebody has more suggestions?
So far there are following features to implement in next version:
1. Favorites
2. Custom fonts
3. Sending note as attachment via e-mail
4. Loading note from .pnote file (e.g. this one sent via e-mail)
5. Recycle bin
6. ?

Generic Solution

Here's the generic solution - https://portableapps.com/node/16003

This should support any Windows app.
