Font changes when story is published

Apr 13, 2016


I'm using the 'Tekton Pro' font in my story, however when I publish the story it seems to change it to a font very similar to Arial. 

It looks like this when I'm designing:

Then changes to this when published:

Does anyone know why this is happening? Many thanks!

Hi All,

Thank you for your replies! Christie, I am testing the course in a different place actually (the VLE) as I don't have a test area on our intranet where it will be stored when completed. I did look at those posts, but I'm still confused. So does every user have to have the font installed on their computer to view it online? I'm using an HTML 5 format output so that's what it sounds like. The odd thing is that surely if I have it in Storyline shouldn't I (at least) be able to see it when I publish? I don't understand how anyone could necessarily know what fonts people have installed on their computer so does that mean it's safest to stick to regular fonts? It's a bit disappointing as obviously it's nice to make it look a bit different :(

Thanks for your help!
