Custom Romanian Fonts in Rise


I tried to add some custom fonts in Rise as described here.

I used fonts with special Romanian characteristics such as: ș ț ă â Ș Ț Ă Â. Somehow the special fonts are not displayed well in Rise. As you can see from the attached picture, the same fonts in a text editor are displayed normal, but in Rise these special fonts don't change as the font type changes, nor are they displayed correctly.

Do you know any solution to this problem? Using them like this does not look professional - for a Romanian eye it would look like something is wrong or like a sign of neglect.

Hi Anca, 

I saw you mentioned an image, but I didn't see anything attached here? Perhaps you could try sharing it again. 

The labels of Rise don't support the custom fonts, and a few other community members have requested additional support of special characters in the labels, so I'll keep you posted on that too!

Thank you Anca for your reply. That's so annoying that Rise won't allow for this. I've searched the internet for compatible fonts and none of them are working with Rise with the special "Latin" characters. 

Articulate, surely your team has come across this before. Is this a bug in the system??

Just an update: Helvetica Neue font is the only web font I've found to work. It would be nice for the Articulate team to chime in on this because other supported fonts aren't displaying these diacritic characters. The fact that Helvetica Neue works seems to me like a bug.

Otherwise, alist of compatible fonts with diacritic characters, that work with Rise, would be extremely useful.

I have used this article and none of the fonts on Google Fonts work with Articulate Rise. There is a list of default Rise fonts on that page which says you can download their counterpart on Google Fonts that should include these non-latin characters, or diacritics. When you download the fonts they still do not work in Rise. On Google Fonts you can test the font and you can they work for these non-latin characters, but they just don't work when you put them in Rise. They default to a serif font instead of the one specified.

If you scroll up, Anca has given an image of what is happening in her first reply to her post.
