What is meant by using friendly font name in the Cards font field?

Here what I have tried but not working:

Helvetica Neue LT Std bold condensed

also tried: HelveticaNeueLTStdBd

Here is my manifest:

{

"version": "1.0",

"description": "Technology Inovation 17.2",

"fonts": {

"HelveticaLTStdRoman": {

"fileName": "HelveticaLTStd-Roman.otf",

"postScriptName": "HelveticaLTStd-Roman"

},

"AHelveticaLTStdUltraComp": {

"fileName": "HelveticaLTStd-UltraComp.otf",

"postScriptName": "HelveticaLTStd-UltraComp"

},

"HelveticaNeueLTStdBd": {

"fileName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-Bd.otf",

"postScriptName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-Bd"

},

"HelveticaNeueLTStdBdCn": {

"fileName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-BdCn.otf",

"postScriptName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-BdCn"

},

"HelveticaNeueLTStdRoman": {

"fileName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-Roman.otf",

"postScriptName": "HelveticaNeueLTStd-Roman"

}

}

}

Hi,

Please change the name in the Metadata Style ( Content&Layouts/Cards) field to HelveticaLTStdRoman.

Publish the new change and test it on your device.


Friendly font name is the name that you will use when editing the cards and that name must be mentioned in the Metadata Style.

"fonts": {

"myFriendly_font_here": {


Thanks,

Andrei

We're hoping to make the custom font workflow much easier in the near future.

Ok Resolved. I was using "HelveticaNeueLTStdBd" However a coworker of mine discovered that the first letter "H" must be lowercase.

So this is what worked "helveticaNeueLTStdBd". I first made this change in the manifest and then uses the same in the cards.

Adobe should consider confirming this and adding it to the how to page for others.
