Custom Font Problem with iOS


#1

Hi,
I am trying to add custom font to my application. I copied the font file to app/fonts folder.
The font being used is Helvetica Neue LT Std 45 Light.
I am trying to apply the font globally across the application. So I added the following in app.css

  • {
    font-family: “HelveticaNeueLTStd-Lt”;
    }
    This works fine in Android. But it does not work on iOS.
    I tried adding the style separately for iOS and Android like this: -

.android * {
font-family: “HelveticaNeueLTStd-Lt”;
}

.ios * {
font-family: “Helvetica Neue LT STD 45 Light”; // Name taken from Font book app in Mac
}

But this doesn’t seem to work either.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You.

For iOS, you have to use the postscript name as font family name.
