Custom Font packages not working in aem 6.2


Level 2

I have tried importing new fonts in aem 6.2 under /etc/designs/myapp/fonts and /apps/myapp/fonts  where fonts is sling:folder and then made the font entry GFX font Helper. The fontlist node is created automatically in the fonts folder. But when i try to use the few font in the font-family it shows me no changes. I have even downloaded various fonts from internet and used them but still no changes. I feel that the custom fonts are not working.

I would request you to try this documentation :


//  Adding Fonts for Graphic-Rendering

  • Open CRXDE Lite and navigate to your project application folder:

  • Under /apps/<your-project>/ create a new node:

    • Name: fonts
    • Type: sling:Folder

    Save all changes.

  • Copy the font files into this folder; for example, using WebDAV.

    • Update the OSGi configuration of Day Commons GFX Font Helper. Add the path to your fonts folder; i.e. /apps/<your-project>/fonts.

    • Return to CRXDE Lite. You should now see a .fontlist node in your folder containing the name of the imported fonts.

      These fonts are now ready to be used in the Java API.

Also please have a look at this reference post :-


//How to apply font for only one component?


// How to add a specific font support in AEM

I hope this would help you.
