In addition to a standard set of fonts available for use by any template, PrintUI supports uploading custom fonts to the system. Each client's fonts are specific to their account and will not conflict with other clients' fonts. Fonts can be managed directly within the InDesign panel. To manage your fonts, click on the Fonts tab. The panel allows for three font related actions:
1. Upload Font Allows you to select a font file to be uploaded to the PrintUI cloud for use with the system. As soon as it's uploaded, it can be used in templates.
2. Remove Font Allows for the removal of a previously uploaded font. Be very careful with the use of this action. If the font has been used by a template, the template will no longer render correctly once the font has been removed.
3. Download Font Allows for downloading of a font previously uploaded to the system for use on your local machine.
Please read the following guidelines for uploading and using custom fonts:
1. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct license to be using your fonts on the system. Generally, font developers require a license which allows embedding the fonts as well as a special server license.
2. Only Windows Truetype and OpenType fonts are supported. Postscript fonts, pre Mac OSX Truetype fonts, Mac "dfont" Truetype fonts, Multiple Master fonts and the like are all not supported. If you use one of these fonts in your document it should fail preflight.
1. Only true OpenType small caps are supported. Faux small caps will be converted to 100% size.
2. Text frame first baseline offset must be set to "Ascent".
One handy trick for adding to the fonts available in a template without having to add them to your base set is to put a text frame on the pasteboard, out of the way, then set some text in every "extra" font you'd like to include in the list.
