Here is one of the Garamond fonts which the book site said was Scribus compatible.
I have taken it from the TTF subfolder but the info says it is Open type layout True Type Outline

The alphanumeric font zip files are "too big" or other problem
And ttf is not a recognized upload for this board

The files are ttf
I am trying to upload zip files but board keeps rejecting them either as too large or other problem.
This time I will try the smallest zip file (symbols not alphanumeric)



thanks

One more question are they ttf or otf file types?  Also would you share the font files so I could install them and try them in Scribus?

Update: I got the fonts from google fonts... I installed them in both Mac OSX/Scribus 1.5.4 as well as Linux Mint Debian/Scribus 1.5.4 flatpak and everything worked fine.  I do not have a Windows box here but tomorrow at work I will install the fonts on my Windows 10 machine.  Which version of Scribus are you using so I match everything up correctly with yours.

I am a techy reaching back to the 80s.  So none of my Windows folders, including Fonts are hidden at the moment.

thanks

The font folder in Windows is usually a hidden file... have you tried turning on hidden folders system wide before opening Scribus?

I have the problem mentioned at the end of that post you pointed to.
When I open Scribus and try the Fonts  "add" function it doesn't see the Windows/Font folder.
That's even though Scribus in the main font menu does recognize every font that existed in the Windows/Font folder prior to installing Scribus a while ago.
As I said it appears that Scribus has no problem with any font (as far as I can tell) that existed in the Font folder prior to installation of Scribus only ones added since I installed Scribus.
The new fonts I first installed are

EB Garamond
Sorts Mill Goudy

which are recommended on a couple of sites and therefore should be fully compatible with Scribus.  These were installed a couple of weeks ago and today I installed a couple of symbol fonts GE Nautica and Significante (the project I am working on is a sailor's guide book)

I can substitute the already installed Garamond if need be.   I would like to be able to use the symbols for some parts of the book.

Whether I installed the new fonts a couple of weeks ago or today, Scribus can't find them

thanks for your help.

Ah, OK.  Maybe not the answer I'd hoped for  :(   ... but it's good know it's just me!

Since whatever the problem is seems to be fixed in the devel version, maybe it's redundant to file a bug report.  I can just live without this font until the next version comes out.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Little_Evenstar

First option is to always convert the pdf file to a high resolution image, there are several free options out there, just be careful with the online conversion sites, if anyone else has recommendations for a site, please suggest it.

To make any other suggestions I would need the pdf file in question to test and see what other issues could be arising... if you do not mind posting it here please do. Thanks!

Cheers!
