That's a darn good question, though FWIW if you prowl around
various discussion boards on the web you'll find Rev isn't
alone here; a few other programs also display incomplete lists
of installed fonts.
I was thinking about this yesterday, and I have a question
for you or Richmond:
When you set the textfont of a field to a font name not included
in Rev's fontNames function, does the field use that font?
If so, we may be able to come up with a scripted workaround to
replace the fontNames function, something like linFontNames
which would poke around to find what it needs to return a
Not only would that solve the problem for us, but may also be
helpful for the Rev engine team to find a good solution.
