Hi there

I'm sorry, but you will need to expound on what you are looking for. What exactly are "Google Awesome" fonts?

Is this a specific font family named "Google Awesome"?

Is it one or more different font families that are "Awesome to use with Google" somehow producing some effect that cannot otherwise be achieved?

Or something else entirely?

Cheers... Rick

Hi Rick,

Actually , I want to use following google font links in webhelp

<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:500,600,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,600,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

<link href='http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

It is working fine in browser but not with Robo web help.

Regards,

Satpal Jassal

Okay, closer but still not understanding. (Sorry to be dense here)

Do you have a topic in a WebHelp system where you are attempting to insert these links so that others may click them and peruse what is there?

Or are you wanting to configure these links so that the WebHelp output files actually USE these fonts instead of whatever font is presently being used?

Cheers... Rick

I would suggest that you look into adding these into your CSS that you want to be used with your WebHelp.

If Satpal is wanting to use these fonts, do you have an example handy of how that would be achieved?

Cheers... Rick

This is not really my area but I think the problem is that SatPal wants to use fonts that reside on a server and are referenced in the CSS and that RoboHelp is not designed to work that way.

I am not saying it cannot be coaxed to do so and it might be that the desired font appears in the output but not in the design editor.

Good luck with the experiment. Do wear safety glasses.

Instead of using the <link> tag in the topic, use the @import option. When you choose a Google Font, you can also choose the @import tab for a link. Add that link to your CSS manually. You can then use the font in your output.

To work with the font comfortably in RoboHelp, you may need to download the font and install it in Windows. Otherwise RoboHelp may not pick up the font for the editor.

I am just starting to research switching my Robohelp project to web-fonts..I know that my question is probably google-able though I imagine that others may have the same initial question--some of our clients access the help environment on servers that are not connected to the internet--is this is a showstopper for web fonts? (Yes, I know that the question probably answers itself: internet==web)

What is the showstopper you are referring to? What is the problem you are expecting?

You can use custom fonts, no problem. Follow the link to the blog post above for details. Just me sure that you have the correct licenses to distribute the fonts in that way.

My concern was that web fonts require some relay/exchange with the www gods and so if it's a local host the same support is missing. I guess that importing a web font into robohelp and its css will accomplish this for those accessing the Help.

I am perfectly happy with Google Open Sans which seems relatively unrestricted.

I'm doing it! Thanks, I'm certainly picking up knowledge from your blogs.
