Title: Chinese fonts for Scribus
Post by: aa_gangchen on September 14, 2011, 07:24:13 pm
Does any of you have the experience of installing and using Chinese fonts for book cover design with Scribus or In Design? Any information will be appreciated.

I have done many book cover design in English using Scribus, but I have an author who is publishing a book in Chinese, I am going to need a book cover with Chinese fonts.

I manage to figure out a way to use some basic Chinese fonts in Scribus, but now I want to use some fancy, special fonts, does anyone know how to point Scribus to these special fonts path? OR which directory should I copy these fonts to?
