Hi, I have a MapInfo layer with custom True Type Font Symbols. When I upload this layer to SSA, I do not see these fonts.
Can you let me know, how to install these custom fonts to SSA?
You need to build the custom symbols into a JAR file and then publish this JAR file on your Spectrum server.
Here are some more details:
Building the WAR
Open command line or Shell prompt and run the following commands. Make sure to execute them in the folder where the images are actually located (otherwise you get folders in the jar file)
jar cvf <MyJarFileName>.jar *.png
where <MyJarFileName> is the name of the JAR file you are creating. This statement will include all the png files in the JAR file you are creating.
Deploying the JAR on the server
Copy the newly created JAR file and paste it into this folder on the Spectrum server: install_dir/server/modules/spatial/lib.
where install_dir is the folder where you installed SSA, typically C:\Program Files\Pitney Bowes\Spectrum.
Thank you Peter,
Are these steps the same, if I have True Type Font in *.ttf file?
jar cvf <MyJarFileName>.jar *.ttf
You are rigth Peter, I have installed Tru Type Font on server with standard way and the layer in now displayed correctly. Thank you for your help. Marek?
