I am trying to use this Google Font called 'Raleway" in a FileMaker 13 solution that will run on Macs, Windows and FileMaker Go. The font works great on Mac and FMGO 13 but on Windows it's only displaying one of the six font weights.
while i don't know the reason for the problem, it looks like
FileMaker/Windows has some difficulty with that particular font family; i
notice that Raleway directly from Google Fonts is version 2.001, whereas one
of the developers of the font has released version 3 and it's available both
Truetype and Opentype; i would try those versions just to see if they work
better in FileMaker:
I've run into problems before on Windows 7 with OpenType fonts. And like you see, it's fine in one application, not in others. Font rendering on FM in Windows has always been less than ideal.
The font has same "Font Family Name" in all weight, so the applications that don't have UI for selecting "Subfamily Name" like FM seems can't select it.
Yes, I ended up having to rename and rebuild the font family using FontLab to get it to work properly with FileMaker.
Here is the revised version which seems to be working on both Mac and Windows now.
