    We are replacing our applications existing HTML editor with the Telerik RadRichTextBox.

    One of our users noticed that her font was no longer available in the FontFamily combo.

    I discovered that the font she could not find is a *.otf (OpenType) font.

    Does the RadRichTextBox support *.otf (OpenType) fonts?

    I found other posts related to this problem which suggested to use a font converter located at www.freefontconverter.com.

    The font converter did not work, but I did find a working one at http://www.fontconverter.org/.

    I tried the converted fonts and they now work in the RadRichTextBox.

    Hi Ralph,

    I'm glad to hear you were able to resolve the issue.

    In general, we are unaware of any similar problems and all fonts installed on the machine should be shown in the combos in the ribbon and selection toolbar. The fonts should be registered in the FontManager by default, so you could also try resolving this by registering the font like this:
    FontManager.RegisterFont(new FontFamily("Arial"));

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
