Is it possible touring a font into proceeding on iOS as a resource. I have tried with a .TTC, and using a pjs directive on one of the pde files,but no joy (although this works on the wild web).
eg: http://supportingphysicsteaching.net/CMR/falling/addingForces.html, which accesses cambria.TTC on a remote url…
PS I tried the contact me, but both filling-in and not-filling-in the spam trap trapped me.11523. March 2015 at 14:40 #1107audiocommanderKeymaster
sorry for moving your post, but it had little to do with the topic.
From you link, I recon you are talking about processing.js. Using fonts with processing is not straightforward and really as complicated as you can get it.
See http://processingjs.org/reference/createFont_/ and http://processingjs.org/reference/loadFont_/ for details.
Hope this helps,
ps: just checked the contact form and it worked?
Just add “cold” and it should be okay.23. March 2015 at 16:17 #1120Ian LawrenceGuest
Thanks. I did try ‘cold’, resisting the temptation to query the question. It was processingjs, which I seem to have beaten into submission on the open web re fonts (mostly by re-reading that manual until it finally sunk i), and have been footling with processingjs and procoding for a while. The facility to use multiple pdes is neat for what I want to do, and maybe it’ll be a good dev environment even without the fonts fixed(and maybe the Mac desktop edition, which I currently don’t own). Sadly, there is much more at http://supportingphysicsteaching.net/, all of which predates the foray into processing, and where the Cambria font is heavily used (mostly through css styling, so I may be in luck). I’ll have another footle, and see how I do. It could be something as simple as swapping to .ttf, rather than using the .TTC bundle.
Thanks again for the rapid response.

sorry, not sure if I get everything of what you’re saying,
but just to make sure:
– ttc is not supported on the browser (as far as I’m aware of)
– processingjs cannot convert a font that it doesn’t know. So, you first have to make sure that this font is available to the browser (.ttf is not supported by all browsers!)
Dealing with fonts in processing/processingjs is really a little more complicated than it could be (IMHO).
I forgot to add another quite important link that explains a bit more how creating a PFont in processingjs works:

Just for the record, importing a .ttf version of the font from DropBox as a resource seems to work well: there may be more trouble ahead, but that’s fine for now…
