    FileMaker Go cannot use additional iOS fonts installed through a font payload profile

    CS8

      Summary

      FileMaker Go cannot use additional iOS fonts installed through a font payload profile

      Product

      FileMaker Go

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      iOS 8

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker Go is known to support only iOS system fonts. Any font used in a solution, which is not installed in iOS will be replaced by FileMaker Go with another font of its own choosing.

      Apple's own documentation states it is possible to add additional fonts to iOS through creation of a font payload profile, as shown here:

      https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/featuredarticles/iPhoneConfigurationProfileRef/Introduction/Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40010206-CH1-SW43

      I have added an additional font using the above method. The use of this particular truetype font is a requirement for saving as PDF certain reports of our solution. It works fine in both OS X and Windows.

      Though other Apps like Pages and Numbers can see the additional font, FileMaker Go does not honor the new system font.

      Expected result

      Expecting that FileMaker Go would enumerate the additional font installed through Apple's configuration profile and render it when specified in the solution.

      Actual result

      FileMaker Go keeps reverting to another font.
