    You're right that the font needs to be installed for it to work. There is a KO for installing and removing fonts during the execution of your program. Test early, test often. We really have no idea if these will work with current OS's. Since Authorware's EOD at Adobe there isn't a full time QA staff testing out all these things. It's up to us.

    Oh yeah - Authorware does not support double-byte fonts natively. There used to be a third-party u32 that did. It was like RTFObjects.u32 only better. Can’t remember the name offhand ... Can't remember if rtfObjects.u32 supports double-byte fonts or not - gonna guess not.

    By the way, one workaround for font support is to use images instead of text. Not ideal, especially if your course is large, but it can be an option.

    I believe this is it. Found it in the AWARE archives searching "unicode". http://www.jsconsulting.ca/products
