Hi,

I installed  HelveticaNeueLTStd-Lt.otf  on my development machine (present in  C:\Windows\Fonts) but i cannot see it in telerik reporting dropdowns.  

I attach a snapshot of the fonts in the windows/fonts directory where their properties are visible. is it possible that the fonts are not displayed because of the embeddability?

how do I fix this problem thanks in advance.

Hi Ivan,

Telerik Reporting engine uses the GDI+ library and depends on the fonts that GDI+ supports. In this line of thoughts, .NET does not support OpenType fonts, only TrueType fonts. If applicable you may convert the OpenType font to TrueType using a free online converter.

Hi Peter,

converting the font, reinstalling it as true type font and restarting visual studio did it. 

thanks for your help.
