"No embeddable font found" issue

It's boring to read books with the same font, so I tend to embed fonts. What I often do is install the desired font, enter its name in css and see if it is displayed fine in the preview. Then use the "Embed referenced fonts" feature.

This works for some cases but for many (most) others, Editor just says "No embeddable font found". This forces me to do it manually, it works.

My question is: What is it that determines one font embeddable?

I believe this is referring to system 'installed' fonts

A font is embeddable if it is found installed on your system.

But clearly I have installed the font and it shows well BEFORE embedding in preview and other programs (words, notepad). However Editor doesn't find it to embed. Maybe you need the font to test?

The name may have subtle differences.
The @font may have called for a bold or a bold italic
and could not match that
the trouble is there are too many people doing their version of a 'standard'

The font also needs to be either truetype or opentype and depending on your OS, not all installed fonts are embeddable, as they may not be present on the filesystem as ttf/otf files, they could for example be in a dfont or ttc file or all the various font legacy formats possible in linux.

One thing I truly miss is a way to display the fonts used information within an E-book directly in the editor. Especially if I can find no evidence in the CSS itself.

So far I copy text snippets into Word. This will help sometimes to get some additional info of used fonds, but not always and obviously depends on what information exist in the text. But I'd feel more safe if this information or lack thereof would come directly from the editor. Maybe Kovid can add something useful to it.
