Hello

I have this problem:

I am using the "Nina"-Font in my application. But if I am starting it on a pc where no Nina-Font ist installed it is using Times New Roman instead...

How can I solve this problem?

Thanks so much

Sven

Hi Dumdidum,

The simple answer is that you cannot easily do so. The whole point of fonts is that they must be installed wherever you intend for them to be used. This is why most applications refrain from using anything other than the standard set of fonts or at least font-families so that it will maintain a consistent look across all installations. If you have the rights to distribute the "Nina" font then you may be able to include this into your distribution package.
