I am trying to install the font "Lucidia Bright" on my Filemaker 17 but have no idea how to go about it... please help!
fonts are installed at the OS level, Windows or macOS. Once done, FileMaker willbe able to use it.
Win or Mac??
Once you have copied the font file to the relevant folder, you will need to restart FileMaker for it to 'see' the font.
Of course, if you use it, you will need to make sure that all people who use your file have it installed too.
Mac, most up to date OS.
What is the relevant folder and where can I get the font file from?
On your mac, Go to Folder Option
Type this following & enter, /Library/Fonts
There upload your Lucidia Bright Font
Restart FileMaker Pro & Server.
Check & Revert!
Note : Make sure it is a new format and that you get installed as System Administrator for your server machine too(it may help to avoid font mismatch on WD Layout).. Also this is not full-fledged solution that Font is not compatible in your all, Such as Pro/Go/Web Direct. It may vary from FMPro/Go to WebDirect. For more reference see this idea Reference > Install Fonts
Thank you for the thorough and complete response!
I will add that in the new Mac OS there is an application that stores all the fonts called "Font Book". I downloaded the font from the link you provided and added to that app and restarted the FM app and all was solved!
