Adrian,

Here's a handler to load a font named "fred.ttf" located in the default folder.

on loadFont pFont
  if "/" is not in pFont then
  --> pFont IS NOT FULL PATHNAME SO MUST CREATE FULLPATH
    put the defaultFolder into tPath
    put tPath &"/"& pFont into pFont
  end if
  --> NOW LOAD THE FONT
  XLOAD_FONT tPath
  put the result into tResult
  if tResult is not empty then
    answer warning tResult
  end if
end loadFont

You can call this handler from a handler in the card script of card 1
of your stack:

on openStack
  loadFont "fred.ttf"
end openStack
