Unable to embed OTF font in AIR 3.7 SDK

Tags: #otf #air_3.7 #font_embedding_issues



Today we have migrated AIR SDK from 3.6 to 3.7. After migration we got lot of issues related to font embedding:



exception during transcoding: Font for alias 'AvenirLTStdBlack' with plain weight and style was not found at: file:/D:/Project/src/assets/fonts/std-95-black.otfglobal.cssFlex Problem



The above mentioned font is working fine with Flex 4.6 + AIR 3.6 SDK.

    I'm not sure all AIR SDKs are set up as overlays for a Flex SDK.  Make sure the font libraries are listed in your flex-config.xml and those libraries/jars actually exist.

    We were also facing the same issue. The issue was to do with merging of Flex SDK and AIR SDK. The airmobile-config.xml file in the frameworks folder of the AIR 3.8 SDK was 6 KB where as the same file in the 3.5 SDK was 15 KB. Compared them both and realized a lot of namespaces and libraries have not been defined in the new one.


    Replaced the new airmobile-config.xml with the one in the 3.5 SDK and changed the value of "target-player" node to 11.8 and "swf-version" node to 21.


    This solved the issue and I was able to compile the fonts correctly.
