I was trying to apply MinionPro-Bold to a block  using the followign statement. 

_TABlock.TextProperties.TrySetFont(new System.Windows.Media.FontFamily("MinionPro-Bold"));

 

But the text isnt converting to bold. Is there anything that i am missing here. 

 

Regards,

JP

Hello JP,

In case the font family of the installed font is "MinionPro" then you may try using the other TrySetFont method overload which receives a FontWeight argument as shown below:
_TABlock.TextProperties.TrySetFont(new System.Windows.Media.FontFamily("MinionPro"), FontStyles.Normal, FontWeights.Bold);

If this does not help, you may try registering the font by using FontsRepository class as described in this forum post answer. If this does not help either, you may check the return value of the TryCreateFont method. Value "false" may be indicating some issue with the font file and then you may send this file to us in order to investigate the concrete case.

Hello,

OTF files are not supported in our current implementation. We have already logged such feature request. You may vote for it and follow its implementation by following this feedback item. In the description of this item, you will see a possible workaround for converting the font file to TTF font format.
