font families on iOS

Post by monte » Mon Jun 10, 2013 2:18 am

I hesitate to ask but where would I look to fix the font family support in iOS... just incase you don't know what I mean just create a field with some styled text in it and open it on iOS...

Hmm... seems this is more complicated than my trivial example suggests... I'll try and come up with a solid example and bug report it

@monte: Sure - iOS font support isn't the best at the moment (the iOS port was initially done before CoreText became available) - what problems are you seeing?

I've got to come up with a recipe stack but it had something to do with setting a font on the stack. I set it to arial.
