Hello,
Am trying to apply custom font that are not installed on my machine to a word document am creating. Am using apose v18.11.0. I can load the font correctly apply it correctly in my word document but i dont see any effect. So font are not applyied at all. Here is my code
ArrayList fontSources = new ArrayList(FontSettings.DefaultInstance.GetFontsSources());
FolderFontSource folderFontSource = new FolderFontSource(@“path\to\my\font\folder”, true);
FontSourceBase[] updatedFontSources = (FontSourceBase[])fontSources.ToArray(typeof(FontSourceBase));
FontSettings.DefaultInstance.SetFontsSources(updatedFontSources);

So I checked and font are found a loaded correctly. Here is how I apply the font

Style style = doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.Paragraph, "DocumentTitle");
style.Font.Name = "Oswald-Bold";
builder.ParagraphFormat.Style = style;
builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Justify;


When I open the result word doc my font is listed in the word UI font drop downlist. But it is not applyid at all. words are still showing in the word default font

Please ZIP and attach your input Word document, Aspose.Words generated output Word document showing the undesired behavior and a simplified console application to reproduce the exact same issue on our end. We will then investigate the scenario on our end and provide you more information.

for (int i = 0; i < nodes.Count; i++)
{
Shape shape = (Shape)nodes[i];
string s = shape.GetText();

The following code will only work when saving to fixed-page formats such as PDF, XPS, Image formats, HtmlFixed format etc.

Document doc = new Document("E:\\WordDocWithFonts\\output.docx");

FontSettings fs = new FontSettings();

ArrayList fontSources = new ArrayList(fs.GetFontsSources());
FolderFontSource folderFontSource = new FolderFontSource("E:\\WordDocWithFonts\\Fonts\\Oswald\\", true);
FontSourceBase[] updatedFontSources = (FontSourceBase[])fontSources.ToArray(typeof(FontSourceBase));
fs.SetFontsSources(updatedFontSources);

doc.FontSettings = fs;

doc.Save("E:\\WordDocWithFonts\\output.pdf");


Aspose.Words can assign correct font name to certain text but in order for MS Word to properly render that text, you need to install fonts. There is another option you can try is try to embed the Font files inside the DOCX file.

Document doc = new Document("E:\\WordDocWithFonts\\output.docx");

doc.FontInfos.EmbedTrueTypeFonts = true;
doc.FontInfos.EmbedSystemFonts = true;

doc.Save("E:\\WordDocWithFonts\\19.1.docx");

this doesnt change anything how to make sure that font are embedded?

#7

It is not specified in your documentation that the above code is not working for docx. We chose to use aspose assuming what we read in the doc. so i really hope you guys will help us to solve this

#8

i ve done some progress here. Can you confirm that we dont need MS WORD to be install on the local machine to generate a word document? Thanks in advance for you answer

#9

Yes, you do not need to install MS Word.

Aspose.Words does not depend on MS Word. It can process/manipulate documents without utilizing Microsoft Office.
