What requirements are needed for a custom font to work?

I have a report with a custom font that is otf but I am unable to make it work.

What I have tried:

- As it is otf, I saw on Internet that is needed that the custom font will be ttf. I tried to convert it with an online conversor but I think that is not a real conversion because if I look at the preview of the font, it shows the following:

- I also tried downloading a ttf custom font from the Internet, but I could not make it work neither.

- I tried to force that each label take the custom font but without success. Right click on a label --> Format to the field --> Font --> Insert the custom font

- I tried to force on Regedit (Windows) to took the custom font but it also does not work.

Am I missing something or there is some requirement that is needed to make a custom font work in Crystal Report?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi David,

    Use Google and search for this KBA -

    2214614 - Wrong font type displayed when exporting document to PDF from Crystal Reports Designer 2011/2013 using Open Type Fonts

    CRD does not support OTF fonts.

    Only option is to find a proper TTF version of your font.

    Have you tried another online converter? There are many and one of them even says:

    "Not all format conversions work well, so please be patient and nice if our tools refuse to do the work for you!"
