[Closed] Portable Fonts

I have been trying to add a TTF font to PortableApps but it doesn't work. I added my TTF font to the Fonts folder in the PA.c platform and started OpenOffice but it doesn't show up in the list of available fonts. What am I doing wrong?

Other Apps

Are you sure you're placing it in the right folder? Does it work in other apps?

We don't currently support or recommend a version of OpenOffice. We have an antiquated version in the app directory and a dev test not meant for production use. For everyday use, we support and recommend LibreOffice, which is coded and maintained by most of the old OpenOffice team.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

As JTH says & Make sure the font(s) are in there from the start.

John T. HallerWe have an antiquated version [of OpenOffice Portable] in the app directory ...

To be specific, the "antiquated version" in the directory is older than the PortableApps.com Platform's "Portable Fonts" feature, thus it doesn't have the (IIRC) necessary modifications to take advantage of the Portable Fonts.

Also be aware that the Portable Fonts get registered when the Platform is started and de-registered when the Platform is closed, so fonts added while the Platform is open will not get registered. (this only applies to apps which list registered fonts, not apps which require specific modifications, most of which check for the fonts when they are started.)

Edit: Fix a typo & I forgot to explain why I mentioned the second part Pardon
