I am using a webfont (Aviano Black). Muse accepted it and offers glyphs. They show up in Preview and in Preview page in browser but not when I publish the site.
I don't even mind if it gets converted to an image - can I force it to do this?
It is on a spare url at present so you will see it if you want. www.tourconsultant.co.uk
Did you install Aviano Black from Typekit? I was not able to find Aviano Black on Typekit:
One of the common ways to install a webfont, look for WEBFONTS and ADD WEBFONTS+:
You can choose between Typekit or EDGE WEB FONT or SELF HOSTED WEBFONTS.
Where did you fail?
It's not a Typekit Font, I installed it from Self Hosted Webfonts. I purchased the web version of the font so it is legitimate.
It installed fine and it added the font to the web fonts available, complete with glyphs. If I uninstall it I guess Muse will convert it to an image but then I don't have the font to use elsewhere.
I didn't realise there was a Typekit version - maybe that will do the job. The trouble is we used the font to sort of create a Logo of if it's not the same it might look odd.
I'll try though.
I'll let you know if it works
If there were three "checks" to confirm that your webfont was installed correctly, it should pretty much do the job.
You installed SVG, WOFF, and EOT?
The files I have are woff, woff2 and eot. I can get the svg but didn't bother yet.
Muse / Typekit seems to have used the woff and the eot to install the font. i don't really know why it didn't use woff2 but I don't suppose that makes much difference.
I just realised that it's not just the glyphs, The wesite is not displaying the font at all.
Just to be clear - this is not the Aviano included in TYpekit which seems totally different from the one I have from 'Myfonts'.
Did you install via that window from my last Screenshot? As far as I experienced, you definitely need svg as well to have all three types installed. Muse shows fonts that are self hosted with svg, eot and woff. Woff 2 makes no difference, I guess. Tell us, how you installed the font. Yes, the Avian from Type kit is something different.
You should have one folder inside your fonts folder with AVIANO BLACK with all types included.
You navigate to that folder from the BLUE BUTTON ON THE LEFT in my screenshot – may sound like SEARCH or similar .
Yes, I directed muse to the folder with all the font files in, it selected what to inatall.
Then I had to associate the webfont with the system font and everything seemed OK.
I have uninstalled the font, downloaded and reinstalled it with the svg file.
I have republished the site.
No change! I haven't even been able to make an image out of the text becasue Photoshop doesn't seem to have all the glyphs I need to make up the logo. (that seems strange too).
Probably a swerword on this forum but I might have to make the text/image with Quark and save it as a png but that seems a bit extreme. there must be a better way. I just cannot see what I am missing or doing wrong!
thanks for you efforts
Did you definitely install the system font version of this from you web font package? If you use a different system font version, you will encounter problems. Best practice: Uninstall every version of the font (system version, web font instances) and only install you web font package Including the ttf/otf of this package.
If you want to force a text box being exported as an image, simply use a system font blank within it. This is enough to cause the font conversion.
Possibly not at least not in the stricktest sense! I have owned this font for many years but only bought the web version a few months ago. the system font has been moved from machine to machine several times. I will do as you suggest and uninstall the lot and try again. However I will need the system version of the font reinstalled for dtp stuff and doesnt Muse need to 'match' the webfont with the system font anyway?
In the short term I did create a png of the Logo which is OKish for the moment.
Thanks for the help!
