Using proprietary custom fonts

I recently began a project that involves business cards.

 

One of the desired features of the app was to generate previews of the cards before they were sent out for printing. The big roablock I found on this part was the font, as it's a propiertary font.

The only method that answered it was using the SVG method shown in this tutorial: https://www.powernimbus.com/2019/04/using-custom-fonts-in-powerapps/

 

While it works as intented this process leaves a lot of data exposed on the Image control before I even reach the part where I input the actual text I want to be shown.

 

Has anyone dealt with this before and know of a better process?

Hi  @MangoMan09 ,

 

Adding a custom font is not supported within PowerApps currently, by far the best way to customize fonts is with the help of SVG.

If you want to add a custom font within your app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Best regards,

There is a new way to use custom fonts in your Power Apps.  You can simply type the name in the Text property font in a label like this.

"Times New Roman"
 


The result will look like this.  You can only use fonts that are available on your computer and are also compatible with your web browser.  To find out the complete list of custom fonts for use check out my article below.
