ANY control over font choices when using variable reference?
I know custom fonts can't be used with variable references in Storyline.
However it states:
"variable references will be displayed using the default fonts of the system or device on which the content is being viewed."
So I checked what fonts are installed by default for iPad, iOS5.
"Marker Felt" is one of them.
I made a sample SL file with Marker Felt.
A text box was created with a variable reference.
What I was expecting to see was the text with the variable reference rendered with Marker Felt font.
However, I still see the entire text with the variable reference is rendered with a generic Sans-Serif font.
Can i just conclude custom fonts can't be used with variable reference at all?
If so, is there any reference out there as to what default font replaces the desired font for particular OS/Hardware? Any information available on font cascading that happens?
From design perspective, this is actually a big issue when you do not have any control over what font to use.
