Any idea why this font won't work in Visio 2010?
« on: August 29, 2013, 10:32:35 AM »
The TrueType icon font that's provided with Bootstrap 3.0 ("Glyphicons Halflings," attached) will show up in my Visio fonts dropdown, but when I select it, it reverts to Calibri. Any ideas why that's happening?

Thanks.

It's actually an OpenType font, Visio doesn't do OpenType fonts.

Have you tried converting the font as per Saveen Reddy's post? :

It would be interesting to see if they can be surfaced in Visio?
