In some cases, the Scene7 Publishing System requires you to upload a font file to enter or render text in a particular font. For example, to use a particular font for text on a template layer, upload the font file. To display eCatalog Viewer page numbers in a particular font, upload the font file.

Scene7 supports these font types:

  • All TrueType fonts

  • PostScript® fonts

  • OpenType/TrueType fonts

  • OpenType/PostScript fonts

  • PhotoFonts

After a font file has been uploaded, you can change its SPS ID, font name, and type information on the Edit Info screen.

Note:

Scene7 recommends uploading all font styles (bold, italic, bold/italic, and regular) if you plan to use fonts in template layers. Scene7 needs these font styles to process requests. Uploading all PostScript/Adobe Type 1 files associated with a font is also recommended because some of these fonts contain detailed kerning information.

Uploading font files

Upload font files with the same techniques you use to upload other files. You can store font files in any SPS folder. See Uploading your files.

Editing font file information

You can change the ID name of a font as well as its type information. Editing a font file can be helpful in searches and making fonts easier to identify.

In the Browse Panel, select the font file you want to edit in Detail view and choose File > Edit Info. The Edit Info screen opens. Choose the following options and select the Submit button.
