How to get a newly installed font to be used by Lyx?

Postby martinjh99 » Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:48 pm

I have just installed the Charter font package into Miktex in Windows. I also updated the font maps using the Miktex console...

How do I get Lyx to show the fonts in Document/settings/fonts ?

Also can I use any of my installed TTF/OTF fonts?

Welcome to the forum!

For using your TTF/OTF, go to the menu Document→Settings→Fonts and choose the option Use non-TeX fonts (via XeTeX/LuaTeX). Then you can immediately use View→PDF.
