I would like to include a redistributable font using the #resource directive, as suggested here:

If "::" is used in font name, the font is downloaded from EX4 resource

However, I cannot get the compiler to recognize any font types. The error is always "unknown resource type".

Has anybody had any success embedding a font in an ex4? If so, what format was the font?

Unfortunately, the fonts are not yet supported as resources.

Thanks for the reply - do you know if the support is expected any time soon?

It is expected, but not soon.

Please use common Windows fonts.
