    Using Music Fonts

    MarkAJohnson
      Hello, hopefully someone can help me out.

      I am importing MIF files into a RoboHelp HTML project with general success, but I'm having one problem. The music characters, which look fine in the WYSIWYG editor convert to a text font after compiling to FlashHelp. (The music font I am using will be installed on the user's machine).

      Is there any way to prevent my music characters from converting to standard text when I compile?

      Thanks for your help,
      Mark

          Mark,

          I'm not familair with FlashHelp (perhaps you should post in the FlashHelp forum, though people don't like cross posts). However, when using an unusual font, I found that in HTMLHelp it always worked when I would add the font to baggage. Perhaps FlashHelp has a similar function - an ability to compile a font into the help itself. This was also easier than installing it on the end users machine - though I suppose you might need to do that anyway for the application.

            John,

            I added the font to baggage then compiled to Microsoft HTML and it worked. However, it still doesn't work for WebHelp or FlashHelp - I'll see what the FlashHelp folks have to say.

            Thanks for your help,
