Fonts in OSX

Just switched from a Kubuntu machine to a MacBook Pro - Mavericks. I have the latest install from the Sigil site. Imbedded fonts are now not showing up in the Preview panel. Is this a Mac issue or do I need to do something different? They worked fine in Kubuntu.

You need to add a file called "com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml"

Here's the code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<display_options>
<platform name="*">
<option name="specified-fonts">true</option>
</platform>
</display_options>

Create this file and save it into your META-INF folder

That is just for iBooks and is not relevant for this question. This is related to the Qt-framework.
