Adding font

Postby global667 » 04 Oct 2021, 17:14

Hello,

how do I add the font Babelstone correctly in the options of 4.9.1 under Windows 10?
See https://www.babelstone.co.uk/Fonts/Xiangqi.html

Thx and Greets

I don't have Windows 10. But I suppose that, like other Windows versions, there is a fonts directory in which you have to place the .ttf file to make the font available in Windows. After that you can select the font as Piece Font through the font picker ('Choose' button) in the View -> Fonts dialog. The text entry next to that button can be used to type a new fontPieceToCharTable string, which designes how the pieces are mapped to characters of the font.
