Issue Details

  • How do I add, delete, or use additional fonts in LabVIEW that are not in the default font ring?
  • My LabVIEW Icon Editor is missing the Small Fonts, how can I add them again?

Solution

LabVIEW populates the font ring with the fonts that Windows has registered or installed on the system. 

In order to modify which fonts appear in LabVIEW :
  1. Obtain/download a font file (typically .ttf, .otf, or .fon format)
  2. Double-click the font file and select Install for all users.
  3. Open the Control Panel in Windows and navigate to Appearance and Personalization»Fonts
  1. The new font will appear in this list, and the list of available fonts will be updated accordingly in LabVIEW without having to relaunch LabVIEW
  2. You can remove fonts from LabVIEW by removing them from the Fonts window (highlight the font you want to remove and press Delete)
