Issue Details

I would like to use a custom TrueType font with Embedded UI so I have installed the same TrueType font both under Windows and under the CompactRIO. The font on the RIO is shown in the X11,XFCE gui and by the command line tool fc-list.

I've tried to activate the font for the String Indicator either directly from the LabVIEW Editor and using the Property Text|Font|Font Name but doesn't work.

Solution

Importing fonts to the Front Panel of the Embedded UI is not unfortunately officially supported . Since this is unsupported, it's not possible to provide guidance on it, except for this workaround:
  •  Substituting the file font with one among the ones already recognized  (Liberation * or PT Sans* ) with the desired TTF file font, the system shows the customized font, after having done the reboot.
