View Full Version : Font duplicates

01-16-2014, 02:57 PM
In our projects here, we seem to get multiple versions of fonts created after there are several versions of the project created. I haven't spent time working out when they arrive, whether it's when adding new fonts, or when saving the project, possibly as a new version, but I've had to remove several (I think I got to 20 of them in one project) iterations of bauhausb.ttf.

The duplication is not restricted to this font, but this font is a default in all project files.

Is this a bug that you are able to resolve?

Hi Jim,

The font is probably added to the project when importing a prefab (that has its own copy of the font) or after merging in another project containing the font.

If in either case Composer detects that a font with the given name already exists in the project then the imported front is copied under a new name since currently Composer does not check whether the file already in the pack is identical to the one being added.

I'll discuss this here internally.
