You can also copy fonts from Windows and put them into a folder and use these fonts while importing document. Please check the following code example.

FontSettings fontSettings = new FontSettings();
fontSettings.setFontsFolder("/user/tahir/fonts", true);
LoadOptions loadOptions  = new LoadOptions();
Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "input.docx", loadOptions);

thanks. is it possible load from project eclipse ie from resources folder


Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can put the fonts into resource folder, get the path of resource folder, and use the fonts’ path in FontSettings.setFontsFolder method.

FontSettings fontSettings = new FontSettings();
fontSettings.setFontsFolder("...font folder...", true);

it is not working instead i have tried these below load the requirred fonts(ie. font1.ttf, font2.ttf) as byte array. it worked

ArrayList fontSources = new ArrayList(Arrays.asList(FontSettings.getFontsSources()));
// Add your custom font to the list.

MemoryFontSource memoryFontSource = new MemoryFontSource(your byte[] font data here);


// Convert the Arraylist of source back into a primitive array of FontSource objects.

FontSourceBase[] updatedFontSources = (FontSourceBase[]) fontSources.toArray(new FontSourceBase[fontSources.size()]);

// Apply the new set of font sources to use.



Thanks for your feedback. Yes, you can use MemoryFontSource to achieve your requirement. Please feel free to ask if you have any question about Aspose.Words, we will be happy to help you.

FontSettings fontSettings = new FontSettings();
fontSettings.setFontsFolder("…font folder…", true);
