Changing the default font in Content Station 9 to match a house style or language

Changing the default font in Content Station 9 to match a house style or language

Content Station uses a default font for displaying text throughout the application. If you want to use a font that more matches your company house style or to better display characters of a particular language, use one of the following methods:

  • Configure Content Station to use an installed font.
  • Build an Adobe Flex application in SWF format that contains the font and configure Content Station to use the font from that application.

Using an installed font

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.

Step 1. Make sure that the font that is going to be used is installed on the same system on which Content Station is run.

Step 2. In the WWSettings.xml file, enable the following setting and link it to the font:

<Setting name="Font" value="font name"/>

Important: Make sure to validate the WWSettings.xml file for correct content. See Validating the WWSettings.xml file.

Example: Here, the font named 'Comic Sans MS' is used:

<Setting name="Font" value="Comic Sans MS"/>

Figure: The Sign In window showing the default font (left) and showing the Comic Sans font (right).

Using an Adobe Flex application

Step 1.Create an Adobe Flex application in SWF format that contains the font that you want Content Station to use.

Step 2. Place the file in the following location:

  • Mac OS: <Content Station application folder>/Resources/style
  • Windows: <Content Station application folder>/Resources/style

Step 3. In the WWSettings.xml file, enable the following setting and link it to the file:

<Setting name="Font" value="style/"your-file.swf"/>

Important: Make sure to validate the WWSettings.xml file for correct content. See Validating the WWSettings.xml file.
