Sigil/Qt does not display the font but ADE

Hi,

i'm using Sigil 0.8.2. Win64. In preview mode, the text isnt rendered in the given font, so i had a look if i made an error. As i cant find one i tried to display the epub in ADE 2, and -surprise- the text is rendered in the specified font.

Its the first time Sigil cant display/use a specified font for me, so i'm wondering where the error is: do i still have one? Is it an error in Qt? Is something wrong with the font?

Other than the 'internal name' font mismatch, Calibre editor Check says OK,
then it, Caliber edit, will crash QT5 (XP) if you open the file to edit

Have you validated the font file?

I'm able to open the epub in calibre's editor, but the font still doesn't render. Must be something about that particular font that Qt5's WebKit just doesn't like.

I just did a quick test with the unofficial 32/64bit Linux 0.8.2 editions, and the embedded font is shown. This might be a Windows-specific Qt issue.

EDIT: It also displays OK with the Linux versions of Calibre Book Viewer and Calibre Editor.

You can always try to convert the font to ttf to see if that fixes the issue with the font.

Thx,

i tried the Microsoft Font Validator, but as i'm only a user of fonts and do not have a glue about font internas i'm unable to interpret the result. There were some yellow and red areas, but the red areas are pointing to versioning and signatures only.

Finally converting from otf to ttf did the trick. Still the validator has some issues, but the signature error is gone.

Interesting that different Qt versions/platforms do have a problem with the font and others not.

Thx everyone for helping.

You may have the same symptom, but possibly not the same problem. I suggest you start your own thread and attach your own sample (copyright-free) ePub.

Just FYI, on windows Qt uses the Microsoft GDI engine for rendering text. The GDI engine is ancient and does not support OTF fonts with CFF font data.

Unless Qt switches to using DirectWrite on windows, you will not be able to see OTF fonts with CFF font data in any Qt based application, such as calibre or sigil.
